Eastern grape leafhooper damage

Eastern grape leafhooper damage

Oviposition and feeding by eastern grape leafhopper (Erythroneura comes) nymphs and adults result in stippling of leaves (A); loss of green coloration, known as chlorosis (B); early leaf drop; and stunting of affected shoots. Although eastern grape leafhoppers do not feed on the fruit itself, indirect feeding over consecutive seasons may result in permanent damage.
