The wings are transparent and have dark spots on the back of the posterior wings. Nymphs are the same size as adults, light green in colour, with semi-transparent and increasingly evident wing primordia. They produce a large amount of honeydew. They have several annual generations. Nymphs emerge in spring, along with budding and even before, with flowering.
Preventive treatment with plant endotherapy (ENDOterapia Vegetal®) to avoid the occurrence of problems. Generally speaking, preventive treatment is recommended in spring, during plant growth activation. The treatment can also be applied in the event of early detection of the pest during flowering.
