Although this bug might not look problematic… it surely is.
Our arborist Bill has learned of these insects at our annual pesticide conference and wants to share this information with you. "They might not be in Colorado just yet but its on the horizon, let's talk about how we can prepare."
The spotted lanternfly is a planthopper insect meaning it spreads quickly from plant to plant and other surfaces. They are extremely invasive and can cause serious damage to more then 100 tree and plant species. "We have sprays that will take care of them and we will certainly alert our clients when they get to Colorado...Were watching them closely." -Bill
