Potato Leafhopper

Description: These small, light green, triangle-shaped insects feed on potatoes, eggplant, vine crops, beans, rhubarb and peanuts. Hopper-burn by potato leafhopper causes 80% of insect damage on potatoes in the eastern U.S. Yield reduction can be drastic; eventually the plant dies.


Solution: Super-Light Insect Barriers provide a good shield. Thorough spraying underneath leaves with Rotenone/Copper Combo or PyolaTM Insecticidal Spray also provides control.
