vines bug

The widespread throughout Europe insect (Lygus spinolaIi) was described by the Austrian Leopold Fulmek due to the massive infestation in the Schilcher area in 1931 as a Schilcher bug. From the end of the 1970s, for example, the pest appeared again in Switzerland and other areas on the preferred host plants (shrubs, herbs and even vines). The whitish yellow larvae develop in five increasingly green performing stages (hence green vine bug). These hatch from the eggs deposited at the Borken and bark crevices at the beginning of the sprouting and walk up the arches. There they suck on the Scroll, Buds and shoot tips, which is noticeable by brownish sting marks on the leaves, which lead to holes and tears on the stem bay. The damage pattern is that of the caused by the Kräuselmilben (see mites ) very similar, therefore, the disease is also referred to as tail curl. The pest is fought with glue traps.
