Leafhoppers are tiny insects that suck sap from your plants while spreading pathogens.
- Our DIY cucumber beetle traps using yellow cups, sticky glue, and clove essential oil have also been shown to catch leafhoppers. See our blog post for more details!
- Placing insect netting (floating row covers) over your garden is the best way to prevent leafhoppers from attacking your plants.
- Yellow sticky traps have been shown to be effective at catching these pests as well.
- Applying neem oil is also another option for treatment, but make sure not to apply when the temperature is above 90, or else you could suffocate your plant!
