  • Anyone try this?

    Saw a new video this morning from Lou Monti showing how he kills spotted lantern flies with water mixed with dish soap. https://youtu.be/EEzEcV0K8C8

    I haven’t used soapy water for lantern flies but it does kill a lot of stuff. You have to be careful with which soaps you use as some dish soaps can burn leaves. They do sell horticulture soaps which probably work best.

    I recommend against Dawn Ultra Platinum.

      I'm going to try it on adult grasshoppers soon. I've tried it on large roaches and I'm not sure it worked. Degreaser works fast on a large roach. Most other insects succumbed quickly to soap and water.
