Leafhoppers on pole beans

Posted by leira 6 MA (My Page) on

My pole beans have been somewhat unhappy this year, and I just realized that the reason appears to be leafhoppers. I really should have checked sooner, but my garden has always been mostly disease- and pest-free, so I think I was in denial.

I'm going to call around today to try to find some ladybugs at a local garden center, but other than that, what options do I have to get rid of them?

Leafhoppers aren't on a ladybug's diet.

jean001a, the Internet suggests otherwise, at least up through the nymph stage...but it seems too late to acquire ladybugs locally, anyway.

So...what can I do?
