SLF Egg Masses

Last Sunday, I noted that I’d only come across one batch of Spotted Lanternfly eggs so far. That morning I returned to Bush Terminal Park and hit the jackpot, such as it is.

The Cottonwood thicket beyond the fencing is evidently well-stocked with the egg masses. I spotted fourteen from the path. I could reach about half of these with a stick taken from a pile of trimmings.

The vertical lines of eggs are coated with a putty or mortar-like substance. This can wear away through the winter. It’s best to scrape and squash the whole mess.

    Thank you for identifying these egg masses and destroying them. Invasive species are a serious threat to the native ecosystem. Thank you for your stewardship!
