Lacebug nymphs are black and covered with spines.
All the life stages – eggs, nymphs and adults – are located on leaf undersides. Eggs are typically laid in groups. Lacebug overwinters as either an egg or an adult.
A hard water spray will quickly remove lacebugs from plants. Contact insecticides may be applied when lacebug nymphs and adults are present. Lacebug numbers may not be high enough to warrant control, however.
