What is Tree Banding for Spotted Lanternflies?
Tree-banding for Spotted Lanternflies is used to intercept Spotted Lanternfly adults and juveniles as they climb tree trunks. These banding treatments can be applied to start in May and continue into September. Tree banding consists of 10-inch wide bands, specifically formulated with an adhesive that will withstand summer temperatures, wind, and rain.
What is the Liquid Treatment for Spotted Lanternflies?
As part of our ongoing service, DIRKS will return to your home or business and apply a liquid treatment to designated trees. This treatment can only be applied during July, August, or September once trees have entirely bloomed. This one-time liquid treatment must be scheduled around the forecast, as rain or precipitation cannot be expected for at least 12 hours after the application. Once applied, the treatment will not harm the tree or any other vegetation and act as a natural barrier helping protect the tree from Spotted Lanternflies. In a matter of days, the liquid will be absorbed into the roots and trunk, helping protect the tree from the inside out.
Does Viking Offer Spotted Lanternfly Treatments for Other Surfaces?

This knockdown treatment is designed to treat outdoor surfaces such as wood, shrubs, foundations of buildings, surfaces of buildings, porches, screens, window frames, eaves, patios, garages, refuse dumps, and other similar areas where these pests are active. This treatment cannot guarantee Spotted Lanternflies from returning, but it can help take the first step in controlling the population.
