Spotted Lanternfly Program

Spotted LanternflyThe spotted lanternfly is an invasive planthopper native to China, India, and Vietnam that was accidentally brought to the United States. This pest was first spotted in Berks County and has since been discovered in multiple southeastern Pennsylvania counties and their surrounding areas.

Why You Need to Report Spotted Lanternfly Sightings

The spotted lanternfly feeds on a wide range of plants⁠—from trees to crops⁠—sucking up sap from the stems and trunks. In the younger stage, they’ll feed on almost anything. This wounds the plants, leaving trees and crops vulnerable to disease.

After hatching, spotted lanternflies only take about two months to reach adulthood, so it does not take long for the egg masses on your trees to turn into a giant swarm.

This pest can change the quality of life and landscape of your community, so don’t wait to report any sightings. You can do that through the PennState Extension, which is partnering with the Pennsylvania Department of Agriculture.

Our service technician Demolly came out and applied mosquito repellant. She was great, she made sure to explain the whole process to us, and sprayed every area she could. Very nice, respectful, and professional. Five stars all the way.

Honestly anyone can lay down fertilizer, but what shows the true colors of a company is how well they handle issues, mistakes, and complaints. Over the 5 years I have been with them I have had very few issues. But when I have they have been quick... to fix anything and everything. They communicate and are very open. They set proper expectations and when my expectations are incorrect they politely right the ship. I have referred them to at least 5 friends and family members. I can appreciate the way they operate because it is the same way I operate my business.read more

Some of the spots of lawn have been damaged after the visit. It seems, something heavy objects ran over the grass and turned roughly in some spots. Have asked for explanation. Visit date 5/12/2021.The technician visited the site later and... provided the feedback that the chemicals applied had negative reaction on some of the spots. And they assured a free seeding with aeration and dethatching in the Fall 2021. Also, they refunded the prepaid money for this year's application. If everything goes fine, and the grass comes out healthy in this Fall, will continue the fertilizing service in the next year. Thanks to the team for their follow up and assurance of providing the good service.read more

We have used a few other fertilizing and weed control companies in the past but green lawn has been the best. They come out monthly and don't over apply product. They do walk the yard looking for problem areas and give me a detailed written report.... My lawn has never been more even than when I used to do it, but the frequency they come out of higher than I could as a home owner. If you want a consistently green healthy lawn call them.read more
