>>we stop them, we spray them.

But those nasty spotted lanternflies may have finally met their match and a girl from montgomery county wfmz jamie stover explains.

>>this is home for 14 year-old rachel birdie every other is.

>>i'm a different type of maple they're all maples but someone morning 3, 4, >>there is some others there and a bunch of his buddies recently invaded the place the rachel started caring because they were talking up the tree she likes to climb i had no idea what they were they didn't really like me want to climb a tree new front then she found out she might not ever be able to climb her treating more if the spotted lanternfly i did what it does and kills trees so she got to work fences and i that uses their natural instinct to go up against them when the bucs are crawling up the tree they hit the foil ring see this tunnel eventually and when they see the tunnel they will go up through there they do it because it's the only way to keep moving up.

They end up here so i see here in my hand there's netting here so this by lanternflies here they can't feet onto the tree so they die about 24 hours later.

She killed 1200 of them in 2 weeks with just 2 traps i don't have to spray him with any type of pesticide i want to do anything to them.

I don't at the squash them rachel's headed to washington dc next month, she's one of 30 middle schoolers competing in a national science competition.

No matter who wins.

All say this spotted
