Symptoms

If there is an infestation, a coarse pale mottling appears on the upper leaf surface of many glasshouse and houseplants. If the infestation is severe the leaves may appear chlorotic and resemble a mineral deficiency. The damaged leaves will remain discoloured, but new growth develops normally once the pest has been controlled.

Spot them

Adult leafhoppers are 3mm long, light-yellow in colour with greyish markings. They are broad at the head end and taper to a point behind. Adults will jump off leaves and fly short distances when disturbed. The creamy white wingless nymphs are much less active and often easier to spot.
