Insecticide Approved to Combat Spotted Lanternfly in 15 States

Nufarm Americas announced that Safari 20 SG Insecticide has received a 2ee label for the control of spotted lanternfly in 15 states.

Label recommendations include Connecticut, Delaware, Kentucky, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, New Jersey, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Tennessee, Vermont, Virginia and West Virginia.

The spotted lanternfly is an invasive plant-hopper quickly invading, and now spreading in, the northeastern U.S. The pest impacts more than 70 host plants and, if infested, would result in significant damage and loss to nursery operations.

Safari is approved for use in containerized and field grown (in-ground) ornamental plants in nurseries, outdoor landscapes, tree plantations and reforestation nurseries.

The label provides application alternatives that include foliar spray, media drench, soil drench or basal trunk spray.

Safari is a super-systemic insecticide with quick uptake and knockdown o herbaceous ornamental, tree and shrub pests. It controls a broad spectrum of invasive pests including Q- and B-biotype whiteflies, emerald ash borers, mealybugs, leafhoppers, leafminers, and armored and soft scales — and now both nymph- and adult-stage spotted lanternflies.
