Question of the Week: Alfalfa Hopper

Last week the question was:  What will this nymph grow up to be?


The is the nymph of a threecornered alfalfa hopper.  This is a species of treehopper that can be a pest on certain crops, usually legumes.  They have piercing/ sucking mouthparts which they use to suck the sap out of the plants.  We usually don’t worry about them much in soybeans but they can cause some trouble in peanuts.  Check out the SC Pest Management Guide for more info and reccomendations.


Here is this week’s question:  What is wrong with this pumpkin plant?
