Before heading for the insecticide, you can try eliminating their egg masses with rubbing alcohol, swatting them with fly swatters, or using mechanical traps. You can use commercial insecticidal soap or other low impact insecticide registered with the EPA (check the label to see if lanternflies are listed and read and follow all instructions.) Spraying in early morning or evening when pollinators are not present is recommended.

This article on management gives specific treatments for the level of infestation present.
