Hi there -

I'm new to the forum and I'm hoping to get some help. My hops and citrus appear to be being eaten by these green bugs. Could someone help me identify what they are? I thought they were potato leaf hoppers, but they are more like 1/3 of an inch long rather than 1/8.

Any help would be much appreciated.

I forget the name of that but it is some type of a plant bug.
Isolated they are not a problem but I think you could have a minor problem if the population exploded.
But I am pretty sure it is in a group of insects called "plant bugs".
The "Blue Green" plant bug would be too easy.

It's a Blue Green Leafhopper!! Pretty sure.
