Leafhopper Biological Control:

Leafhoppers are related to aphids, they suck out the contents of individual plant cells which are then replaced by air, giving the characteristic bleached white spots on the leaves of infested crops. Eggs are deposited singly into the leaf veins from the underside of the leaf. Leafhopper can be difficult to control biologically, therefore we recommend you consult our entomologists for advice.

Lacewings and Macrolophus will both feed on leafhopper nymphs, but no biological control is available for the adults. Some IPM compatible pesticides are available.
