Description and crop damage These small green plant bugs overwinter in the egg stage. As honeylocust buds expand, eggs hatch and nymphs feed on new growth. Adults are found a month after nymphs first appear; they too feed on new growth. Feeding can cause stippling and growth distortion. Heavy feeding can cause defoliation. There is one generation per year.
Nymphs are knocked off leaves with a high-pressure spray of water.
