Seasonal development and life cycle—Leafhoppers
Leafhoppers go through incomplete metamorphosis in their development. Eggs are laid within plant tissues.
Overwintered eggs begin to hatch in mid-April. The nymphs develop on their overwintering hosts and disperse
as adults in early June. Nymphs resemble adults except that they lack wings; later-stage nymphs have small
wing pads. There is no pupal stage and there are several generations a year.
