Brown Leafhoppers zillions

seventowers(6)July 18, 2005

Hi all,

I went out to mow today and also weed , deadhead ect,,

We have been having a great deal of rain lately ..

Most of all the plants in the beds are covered with what appears to be brown leafhoppers.

They are quite fast when foliage is disturbed but I caught a glimpse of them once they settled again.

Is this due to all the rain ?

I did read they travel with the storms .

What do you do when they are in large numbers ??

I don't use harsh chemicals , Neem oil is about all I use .

What eats leafhoppers ? They would have a field day in my garden beds due to large numbers ..

Any help or info would be great ,

Neem oil should help, as would insecticidal soaps.
