Ph 03 342 7150 www.racecoursehotel.co.nz Bugs that spit Mike Bowie is an ecologist who specialises in entomology (insects and other invertebrates). Each week he introduces a new species found in his backyard at Lincoln. His column aims to raise public awareness of biodiversity, the variety of living things around us WITH THE days warming up, spittlebugs are becoming common around the garden. The green coloured nymphs excrete a very conspicuous frothy, spit-like foam that is used as protection against predators and dessication by the sun. The white spittle is produced from a gland at its rear and bubbles are created by farting into the liquid. The spittle also helps to regulate temperature extremes and has an acrid taste, which deters insect predators. Globally, there are about 2400 species of spittlebugs or froghoppers, but in New Zealand only 15 species are known. They are not considered serious pests of the garden. Spittlebugs have been reported on a large range of hosts, including species like parsley, lavender, carnations, chrysanthemums, roses, strawberries and grass. The most common species in New Zealand is the meadow spittlebug (philaenus spumarius), an exotic species first recorded in 1960. The frog-faced adults are six to 10mm long, tan, mottled brown to black in colour, and can jump 70cm when disturbed. Relative to body weight, this jumping effort is better than fleas and equivalent to humans jumping 180m. WOW: Spittlebugs produce a white spittle and bubbles are created when it farts into the liquid. (Below) – What spittlebugs look like as nymphs.
