List of files and visuals associated with this text.


Lace bugs -- so called because of their broad, lacelike forewings -- are usually whitish and 5 to 6 mm long. They are flat and oval to rectangular, with the head hidden beneath a thin, flat hood. The nymphs are black and often covered with spines. Many species feed on the undersides of leaves. Upper surfaces of infested leaves turn yellow or brown between leaf veins, while the undersides become speckled with black, shiny excrement and cast skins of immature bugs.
