Various Hard Bodied Insects

     There are many other hard bodied insects (Fig 1) that can be found feeding on hop leaves. These pests generally do not cause any major economic impacts or significant plant damage and are usually found in isolated and small infestation levels. MVH has found that pyrethrin and azadirachtin products can be effective. For commercial growers, the specific pest will need to be determined prior to deciding what synthetic pesticide to use.
