Leafhoppers are sap sucking bugs. There are many species in the U.K. but the most troublesome is the Glasshouse Leafhopper [ Hauptidia maroccana ]. The adults are small and a pale yellow colour. They will fly or jump up when disturbed.
Leafhoppers extract sap and leave silver mottling feeding marks on leaves which can disfigure them. Adults will also shed their skins on plants which can easily be mistaken for Aphid skins. Plants such as mint are very frequently attacked by Leafhoppers.
