White bubbles on my lavender

Pops3Pops3 Posts: 2

Over the last four days the lavender has been covered in hundreds of little bits of white bubble 

it looks a bit like the bubble from the washing up bowl 

what is , if it's a problem what do I need to do now

    Something I know!!

    It sounds like Cuckoo spit, it's just a little green bug that excretes the bubbly substance, as far as I know it's nothing much to worry about, I've got it all over a hedge, and so long as you don't sit under it, it's no problem at all, the rain usually washes it off.

    Have a quick google for more info image

    Yes - SP has it. If it bothers you just wash it off with a jet from the hose or a squirty bottle of water. It's a little froghopper which causes it and it doesn't really do any harm  image

    It's a place where beautiful isn't enough of a word....

    This is the first thread I've correctly problem solved, so thank you Pops3!image Hopefully it doesn't cause you too much concern, I'm quite fond of cuckoo spit, it means summer is coming to me!

    If you're brave if you move away the bubbles with your finger you can see the tiny little froghopper, I think they're quite sweet as bugs go!

    Yeah, there does seem to be loads of it around this year for some reason.
