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.
