Hi all all summer I have been trying to get rid of Leah hoppers
I had to get rid of one of my rose bush
I'm spraying with various organic products
They are still surviving anything I do
Does anyone have a solution to my problem ??
I tried neem oil dish soap one product with all herb oils and lately I'm using ORGANOCIDE

Leaf hoppers are annoying but not usually fatal to the plant. Are your plants dying? If so, maybe its something else. Can you post some photos of the insects and the damage?

Tkhan, it looks like you already have your answer.

I don't think the leafhoppers would be causing the wilting, although they can make the leaves discoloured and sometimes crispy.

Are you saying the plants are wilted first thing in the morning but not during the day (which would be unusual)?

If your plants are wilting overnight, you have a different problem that has nothing to do with Leafhoppers.

Be aware that leaf hoppers are a disease vector and can infect some plants with virus'.
Nothing that's been done can ever be changed.

This is true! They don't eat the plant, but they do spread some diseases. In So. Cal, we lost most of our Oleanders to a virus called Oleander scorch, a virus spread by leaf hoppers. We had miles and miles of Oleanders as freeway plantings because they were care free. All gone now.
