We provide systemic treatments for the invasive spotted lanternfly. Our systemic treatments are affordable, effective, and will kill the spotted lanternfly.
What is a systemic treatment for spotted lanternfly?
A systemic treatment for the spotted lanternfly is a process where we apply a chemical insecticide to the tree. The tree then absorbs the chemical and translocates it to the entire inside of the tree.
Much like a person taking a medication, when the tree absorbs the systemic chemical, we are protecting the whole tree from the inside out.
Are systemic treatments safe for my family and pets?
Yes, since we are applying the chemical directly to the bark of the tree, your family and pets will have minimal access to the chemical. Once the chemical is absorbed into the tree, it is completely safe for your family and pets to be around it.
The safety of your family, pets, and the environment are ALWAYS our top priority.
Are systemic treatments safe for the tree?
Yes, the systemic treatment we apply is safe for the tree. In addition to killing the spotted lanternfly, the insecticide will also protect the tree from a wide variety of other tree pests.
I have a well on my property, can I still have a systemic treatment?
Yes, even with a well on the property we can still perform an effective spotted lanternfly treatment.
There a few methods for applying the systemic insecticide. One method is to perform a soil drench or injection. With a well on the property we would avoid these methods.
The other method we could perform is a basal spray application. In this method we apply the chemical insecticide to the bark of the tree and allow the tree to absorb the chemical through the bark.
This method is very effective and allows us to avoid applying any chemical to the soil.
When should systemic treatments for spotted lanternfly be performed?
We can can apply the systemic treatment any time of year where the tree is active and not dormant. The chemical insecticide will stay active for approximately 9-12 months.
We prefer to schedule our systemic spotted lanternfly treatments for early spring. This time of year will allow the chemical to fully infiltrate the tree and allow for maximum treatment for the whole spotted lanternfly season.
