  1. saratoga spittlebug

    The Saratoga Spittlebug, scientifically known as Aphrophora saratogensis, is a species of insects that belong to the family Aphrophoridae. They are known for their unique behavior of producing a frothy substance, similar to human spittle, as a protective mechanism. This substance helps them to hide from predators and protect against unfavorable weather conditions. They mainly feed on plant sap and are usually found on various species of pine trees. Please note, extensive feeding by spittlebugs can cause significant damage to host plants, leading to defoliation or even death of the plant.
