Wondering who spit on your plants?

Spittlebugs are likely the culprit of globs of bubbly froth found on trees, shrubs and plants during late spring. This small, true bug goes by several other common names, including frog hopper or spit bug. The small insect responsible for this spit is the nymph or immature spittlebug.

Control is often not necessary for spittlebugs. Spittlebugs and their foam can be removed from plants by washing them off with a stream of water that does not damage the plants.
