Leafhopper Control starts with Safer

Leafhoppers

Leafhoppers are found throughout the world, including North America. They inhabit forests, deserts, agricultural fields and home gardens, and most habitats in between!

 

Because they drink the juices of fruits and vegetable plantings, they can cause a variety of symptoms and problems.  Leaves may appear yellowed and curled or have brown tips. Using a product like Safer® Brand Fruit and Vegetable Insect Killer will help you keep your garden leafhopper free!!

 

 

 

 

So... What are Leafhoppers?

Adult leafhoppers are brown, gray, or greenish in color and measure up to 1/2" in length.  These thin, wedge-shaped insects will take flight immediately if disturbed.

 

Nymphs look like smaller adult leafhoppers, but they do not have wings and therefore, jump about if bothered.  The eggs of the leafhoppers are so tiny, they generally will go unseen.

 

 

 

 

Reproduction Patterns of Leafhoppers

Adult females lay eggs in the Spring when trees start sprouting leaves. She lays her eggs inside the leaves. These eggs generally hatch within two weeks and the nymphs emerge and begin their development, feeding on the juices of the leaves and stems.

After several weeks or months of feeding and several moltings, they will develop into adults. The length of time for development depends upon the species of leafhopper.

 

 

 

 

Leafhopper's Habitat

Leafhoppers are found throughout the world, including North America. They are found in almost all habitats where leafy vegetation is found. They inhabit forests, deserts, agricultural fields and home gardens, and most habitats in between!
