Hummingbird Food: "The hummingbirds come to my feeder much more frequently with this recipe than they did when I used a store bought mix. I was afraid 'my birds' wouldn't find the clear food. Not to worry - they love it!" -Julie F.
Adult spittlebug sucking on plant juices. Heavy infestations distort plant tissue and slow plant growth. The obvious white foam on cones, foliage, or stems may be annoying, but the spittlebugs do not seriously harm established woody plants. They can be tolerated; they do not usually cause significant damage. Handpick or wash off with water in the spring, before the insects mature and can spread. | IPM.UCDavis.edu
