My plant leaves look chewed! Do you know what type of insect might do that?
Insects that have the ability to chew plants must have special cutters in their mouths for this purpose. Such insects may include caterpillars, beetles, and grasshoppers for example.
Can aphids or other insect pests spread viruses from one plant to another?
Yes, many insect pests can transmit a virus from one plant to another. Pumpkins, potatoes, lettuce, melons, cucumbers, beans and beets are just some of the vegetable plants that can be affected.
How do I know if my plant is being attacked by an insect or a disease?
If it’s an insect, the plant may have holes in its leaves. Turn the leaves over and you may see the insects themselves clustered on the underside of the leaves. You may also see and feel a sticky substance if it’s an insect because the insect will leave a secretion on the plant.
Is a spider mite an insect or is it actually a spider?
Spider mites belong to a class called arachnids, to which spiders also belong. They are not actually insects.
