I plan on treating a "host" Alanthus tree to draw SLFs with a spray 5-6ft up the trunk from ground level. Should the spray be used to just wet the bark, or wet the trunk to where the spray runs down the trunk and puddles at the root flare?
Safari 20SG Systemic Insecticide with Dinotefuran can be applied as a basal trunk spray (instructions on page 14) but is not specifically labeled for spotted lantern flies. We recommend that you consult with your local cooperative extension office for additional options.
