Capsid bugs are sap-feeding insects that feed at the shoot tips, and on flower buds, of a wide range of herbaceous and woody plants. The adult bugs are up to ¼in and have distinctive wings, the wings are folded flat over the body when at rest, so the transparent part of the wings shows as a clear diamond-shaped area at the rear end of the insect. Immature nymphs are wingless and generally pale green in color.
Shrubs, fruit trees.
Very fast! Signs of damage appear from late May to early September. Was NOT found on an Apple tree, but one is present in our yard, and eggs can be found in tree bark.
