Spotted Lanternfly (SLF), Lycorma delicatula, is a beautiful pest but don’t let looks fool you. It is destructive, dirty and prolific. Spotted Lanternfly is an invasive planthopper native to Asia that was first detected in 2014 in southeastern Pennsylvania. It feeds voraciously on more than 60 varieties of plants and trees. Spotted Lanternfly is capable of causing serious damage to its host, including oozing sap, wilting, leaf curling, and dieback. In addition to plant/tree damage, they excrete a sour smelling, sugary substance that encourages the growth of black sooty mold which can cover leaf surfaces and stunt growth.
If you think you have Spotted Lanternfly, do not panic! Spotted Lanternfly do not bite or sting but be aware that they are very mobile and management actions must be continuous to keep them controlled. There is no way to prevent SLF from moving onto your Newtown, PA property and it has no natural predators in PA.

Greenskeeper recently came out to my home to give the lawn a Spring treatment. I have been using them for a couple of years now. The technicians who come out are great and never a bother at all. They do what they have to do and go–quickly and quietly. The company has great pricing too which is a good reason I stay with them. I highly recommend them. I have no complaints!
Greenskeeper has been doing lawn maintenance and weeding on our property for a while now, and we have yet to have any problems with their service. They come out routinely to do touch ups and are always right on time. They do a great job on the maintenance, and actually leave us an invoice in the mail telling us the rundown of exactly what they did that day. You don’t have to be there while they do their work either; we can trust them to get the job done efficiently, without any supervision! It’s highly convenient!
What I like the most about the people at Greenskeeper is that they are very reliable. I never have to worry about them coming or doing a great job. They are always on time and the work that the do makes it so that I have a great looking lawn without having to do any work myself. They have a really good rate which is totally worth the time saved working on my lawn. I have already recommended to some of my neighbors and friends and I will continue to recommend them.
I have been very happy with the Greenskeeper company! They are a good lawn care company and their employees are friendly and conscientious people. I would highly recommend the company to everyone! They do a good job for me!
