Dealing with Spotted Lanternflies
Call Today for Effective Pest Control & Treatment
Many people have never even heard of the spotted lanternfly. However, if you are familiar with this insect, chances are you already know what a pain they are to deal with. Native to Northern China, Vietnam, and Tibet, this invasive species has since made its way to the United States and Japan. While still considered an emerging pest, spotted lanternflies are increasingly common in the east coast in states like New Jersey and Pennsylvania. While not dangerous per se, spotted lanternflies are highly destructive, and can contribute to reduced yields on fruit-bearing trees and plants. They are a fascinating species in many ways, and very interesting to look at, but make no mistake—spotted lanternflies are not part of our ecosystem, and should be exterminated promptly whenever possible.
Fortunately, Hoffman’s Exterminating proudly provides spotted lanternfly control. When we found out about the ensuing threat of this pest, we quickly jumped into action, finding the ideal materials and methods to get rid of them quickly and efficiently. With over 30 years in the business under our belts, you can count on our experiences and resources to always get the job done.

How Do You Get Rid of Spotted Lanternflies?
There are two main methods for dealing with a spotted lanternfly infestation: soil injection and spraying. At Hoffman’s Exterminating, our goal is to assess the specific needs of your property, figuring out what works best for your needs. We may recommend either service, or a combination of the two depending on the severity of the problem. Regardless of what option you go with, however, we promise that our work will always be done safely, so that pets, children, and everyone else on your commercial or residential property remains completely protected.
Which type of spotted lanternfly control is right for me:?
- Soil Injection: Soil injection is the process of inserting insecticide into a tree or shrub that the pest in question – in this case, spotted lanternflies – has taken over. Our technicians will inject the insecticide through the affected tree/plant’s roots, letting the material move up through the living parts and into the canopy, thus disincentivizing the pest to use the tree or plant as a food/shelter source. It is worth noting that while soil injection can be used to distribute pesticides, it may also be useful for delivering fertilizer, in case you are looking to bring a dying tree or plant back from the brink.
- Spraying: Our spraying process for spotted lanternflies is pretty simple to what we would use to deal with a range of pests. The one thing to note is that rather than spraying any part of a structure with insecticide, we will instead be spraying the exterior of the infected tree. For this reason, it may be less effective than injecting the soil directly, though a combination of insecticide spraying and injection is often the best course of action when it comes to getting rid of spotted lanternflies.
