Caption: Oak treehoppers (Platycotis vittata) on an oak twig. These insects are common on deciduous and evergreen oaks (Quercus sp.), where they feed on the sap. Small infestations of these bugs do not inflict significant damage to the oak, but in larger amounts they may be problematic, particularly when feeding on saplings and young trees.
