How to Identify Spotted Lanternfly Damage

Early detection of SLF is crucial for effective control. Here's how you can identify signs of damage:

  • Oozing sap on the trunks of trees
  • Wilting or curling leaves
  • Increased ant, wasp, or bee activity around trees due to the honeydew excreted by SLFs
  • Black sooty mold growth on plants and surfaces below infested trees

If you notice any of these signs, it's imperative to contact professional tree care services immediately to assess the situation.

  • Remove any tree of heaven (Ailanthus altissima), a preferred host of SLF.
  • Avoid moving firewood or other materials that could harbor SLF eggs or adults.

Our History

In 2008, Monster Tree Service began as a small tree service company providing arboricultural care to Pennsylvania, Delaware, and New Jersey. Our founder was committed to promoting the growth of healthy trees and giving homeowners unparalleled service while taking care of their yards and homes. As a result, when other tree service businesses struggled to find jobs, our company kept working through every season, growing and expanding like the trees we care for.

Customers love working with us because we’re honest. When we tell customers they do or don’t need a particular service, they know we mean it. Because we care about trees, we’ll always fight for ways to rehabilitate your tree rather than remove it. When we do recommend removal, it’s because we know it’s the only thing that’s safe for your home and family.
