Brief Summary

Read full entry
Froghoppers are particularly known for the froth they make along the stems of various plants. The nymph stage living in this froth are known as spittlebugs. The froth, also called cuckoo or snake spit, protects them from dehydration and predators. These nymphs differ from the adult animals by the light green color. Adults jump away as soon as you try to catch one.
