Some of Delaware's Most Common Problem-Causing Insects Include:

  • Spotted Lanternfly: The spotted lanternfly is a threat to Delaware and the United States. This insect is detrimental to Delaware’s agricultural industries, the environment, residential areas, and has an impact on interstate commerce. This insect is a destructive, invasive plant hopper that attacks many hosts, including forests, ornamental trees, orchards, hops, and grapes.
    With a hard frost, the adults will die during the fall and winter months. The egg masses the females lay this fall will survive the winter and hatch out 30-50 nymphs come late April / early May. Locating and destroying any nymphs in the spring, adults in the summer and fall, and egg masses created this fall will reduce the population that hatches out in the spring.

  • Bagworm Control: The Bagworm has a voracious appetite and is considered a serious pest. Host Trees Develop damaged foliage that will kill the tree if left unchecked. Early detection of infestation is key with this species. 
  • Tent Caterpillars: Eggs hatch in early spring about the time of bud break, mid-April to mid-May. The caterpillars have five growth stages before pupating, each lasting seven to ten days. Adult moths emerge and lay eggs in late June into early July. They’re most recognized when troops of caterpillars cover tree branches with their silk tents.
