Native to Asia, the Spotted Lanternfly has been spotted in Cherry Hill and surrounding areas too often. These invasive planthoppers were first discovered in Pennsylvania in 2014, and have since become a known, common pest.
Bug Bombers is a team of mosquito control experts with a specialty for all pest control services in PA and NJ. The Spotted Lanternfly (SLF), Lycorma delicatula (White), feeds on sap producing plants, especially species with economic value like black walnut and grapevines.
Feeding doesn’t directly kill the plant, but the stress can compromise the health and lead to death. Contacting our team to help with pest control for SLF helps your home, commercial property, and community.
The Spotted Lanternfly lays its eggs in the fall for spring hatchlings. You can spot their eggs on hard surfaces like:
The eggs are protected with a mud-like coating, which is usually what’s visible instead of individual eggs. Adults emerge in July with an activity period that lasts until winter. SLF adults can fly, but they’re just as likely to be seen jumping.
Unfortunately, there is no way to prevent Spotted Lanternflies from invading your property. You can, however, handle the problem swiftly and take precautionary steps to avoid further spreading.
At Bug Bombers, we’re here to help customers with prevention measures as well. Aside from calling us to handle your pest control, some other steps to take include:
SLF are a destructive, invasive pest that threatens both agricultural and ornamental plants. Whether you need removal as part of special event pest control or to salvage your trees, we can help.

Get proactive about regularly checking your exterior for signs of egg masses. When in doubt, contact Bug Bombers to inspect your property for these pests.
