Plant bugs

List of files and visuals associated with this text.

Adult plant bugs are 2 to 7 mm long, and green, yellow or bronze, occasionally with black stripes. They feed on the foliage, young shoots or fruits of a large variety of plants. Plant bugs inject a small amount of saliva into plant tissues when they feed, causing new growth to become distorted or leaves to develop necrotic (dead) patches or leaf spots. Immature bugs are shaped like adults but have shorter wing pads instead of full-length wings.
