Annoying Spittlebugs


We have a problem with spittlebugs. They continue to spit or make this stuff and put it on our plants. I am tired of wiping this (spit) off my hands when checking plants and pulling weeds. If anyone knows of a solution, I'd appreciate the help. Ta ta for now.

I read to spray the foam junk with a jet of water to knock off the foam. Next thing it said was to use insecticide and you don't want that. So try that for now and i'll look some more. That is kinda creepy looking and I wouldn't want it on my hands either lol. Good luck David...

Get your brothers and sisters out there with gloves and have them squish them is another idea that someone came up with. They don't last to long I read to. So hope they get lost fast lol, its the Mother spittlebug that is making it to protect her future sibblings..

I feel your pain, man. Those bugs are awful, especially when you're weed-whacking! :D

Sorry I can't give you any advice on how to get rid of them... I guess you just gotta tough 'em out like a man. Haha!
:D

K, hope to see you soon.

I agree with Kaila - it is pretty sick although you might help other people know what they are. Vickie had some pretty good ideas. Love, Grandma Dot
