By now most of us have seen or heard of people using empty water bottles to catch spotted lanternflies. I was skeptical of how easy it would actually be, so I tested it out for myself. I can confirm—catching spotted lanternflies with empty bottles is incredibly simple! Just hold the bottle over the pest and boom, it flings itself off of the tree and into the bottle. Once you’re done collecting lanternflies, just stick the bottle in the freezer to humanely kill them. Dump them out where they can decompose and recycle the bottle– then you’re done! Watch the video above showing a bit of my experience for more info!
