The LanternTrap targets the Spotted Lanterfly specifically by taking advantage of the Lanternfly's natural instinct to crawl upwards.
The LanternTrap uses no pesticides or adhesive tapes which can be dangerous to other wildlife.
Install using a staple gun or small nails. Multiple kits can be combined to form large multi-net traps.
In the summer of 2019 the Spotted Lanternfly showed up in our back yard. Since then we've been trying a variety of methods and traps to deal with the infestation. The "LanternTrap", as we call it, has been the most successful and environmentally safe solution we've found to date.
Currently we are making very small quantities by hand and 3D printers. Our goal is to make LanternTrap Kits accessible to as many people and public parks as possible. We are collaborating with local businesses to simplify the components and speed up the process.
