I am sorry for this delayed reply to your gardening question. The spring rush has brought a deluge of questions and we are working hard to catch up!
Most turf insecticides will kill spittlebugs and one such product is acephate. This is best applied in the early morning hours. The following web page gives more info on controlling spittle bugs.
