Froghopper Known for their plant-sucking nymphs which encase themselves in froth in springtime, froghoppers are the best jumpers in the animal kingdom. The insects can jump up to 100 times their length, experiencing over 400 g (gravitational acceleration) during the jump.
Froghoppers, or spittlebugs, are small insects found on plants from May until the autumn. The nymphs excrete a protective covering of froth known as 'cuckoo spit'. Find out more at www.oakleafgardening.com
