Tree-hopper insects are plant-feeding insects comprising approximately 3,200 species. They secrete a sugary substance called honeydew on to the plants that attract other insects.
They deposit egg in masses on the surface of plants and then however, insert the eggs into plant tissue in doing this they rarely harm the plant so they are not considered plant pests in that way. They are considered pest by attracting other insects that also feed on the plants.
