Re: bug ID

Sure sounds like a planthopper of some sort from the feeding habits and behavior you describe, but the family is incredibly large, and my references too limited to pin it down.

I looked at your bugs and then through my bug books and came up empty. Can
you do more pictures?

Marge, I realize you said you were behind on messages, however I didn't
any response from anyone on this post from 4 days ago and I was wondering
anyone on the list was able to access my bug pictures. ?

Here's a couple of pics of the bug needing ID.The one in the pics have
dead awhile. They are shown on a q-tip to indicate size. The photos
really clear, but I may have clearer ones to add later. When they're
and on the plant, they don't look like this to my eye. They look more
a little tan/brown Pac-Man, sort of humped, like a little helmet, and
carry a tuft of cotton behind them. When disturbed they scurry to the
side of the stem. If you try to pinch them, they jump very quickly
I'm pretty sure this is a sucking insect, though I haven't seen any
However, the longer they stay on a lily, the stem at that point turns
I have seen them on 2 lilies and on my Deutzia x 'Montrose'. This album
also contains a photo of the first bloom of the season on my Deinanthe.


That should work, otherwise go to:
and click on Bug ID

Right now I've got a bug here I found on one of my lilies
last year.  There was just one last year.  I posted pictures, also
showed to
our Hort Ed. While trying to get an ID, it destroyed the plant.
This year
I found 4 of them on a Deutzia. Snipped the whole stem, bagged it
and took
it in to CES. He said possibly lacebug, but I'm not so sure.
I've never heard of lace bugs on lilies - they mostly go for Azaleas
and Pieris around here and they're pretty easy to ID if you can see
the dratted things - their damage is also fairly easy to ID. I must
have missed the posting of the photo, can you put up another? You've
got my curiosity up:-)

Have you tried Safers on it? Hort oil? Those are my 2 solutions for
insects I simply have to do something about - that and hand picking,
squashing and/or dropping into soapy water.
