Spittlebugs, adults (family Cercopidae): In late June we shared a photo described as looking like “a fresh loogie someone just hocked up”. Spittlebugs create that goop to protect themselves as they grow. Pictured here are two of the non-slimy adults that leave their goop behind and forage out in the open in late summer.
