What techniques have any of yinz tried to combat ailanthus?

And what has worked well, and what not so well?

Saw my first couple of Lanternflies yesterday. Those things are fast and not that east to kill. I live close to Marsh Creek Reservoir and this was the report from a local fishing site:

LANTERNFLIES have invaded the lake (Marsh Creek Reservoir). They are everywhere. A big gust of wind came and blew a bunch right out of the trees and into the water and the fish had a feeding frenzy. It was incredible. Besides the bad news for the trees is that they land on your boat, your gear...even had a few land on me. And, when they hit the water they can't get out. The surface is covered with them.

I've heard the same reports from several other SEPA sites. Hopefully the insect is not near as threatening to the flora as advertised, because they sure are prolific and no doubt coming your way...

Over the last couple of weeks, it went from a spotty occurrence to see one to me having dozens on my deck and siding at any one time. Morgantown, SE Berks Co. They like to bunch up in clusters in corners. I've sprayed insecticide in those areas and I have many dead ones on my deck now that I need to sweep off.

I was in downtown Reading on Monday. They were using mini street sweepers to suck them up. Sidewalks were covered in them.

I'm trying to make the most of the situation and am actually getting pretty good at Lanternfly Wiffleball. It's a lot harder than the lightning bug wiffleball I played as a kid.

Near Bally my daughter cleared her deck with her shop vac. A few inches of alcohol in the drum. There were 200 on the grill cover alone.
