  I have killed 45 plus so far, They are fast, Got to use a Fly Swatter

When I was visiting UPMC Hospital East in Monroeville last month, they were using leaf blowers to clean them off the sidewalks.


I live in Michigan and (I never thought I would actually write this down) one of the benefits here is that the temps dip below zero occasionally in the winter. Thankfully, anything below about 10 degrees F will kill the Spotted Lanternfly Eggs. The adults die after the first freeze but the eggs are more resilient.
