HOW TO REPORT SIGHTINGS OF XYLEM-FEEDING INSECTS

Plesae let us know when you see either spittle, nymphs (juveniles) or adults of the xylem-feeding insects (froghoppers and some leafhoppers) that have the potential to act as vectors of the Xylella bacteria. These records will help us build up a picture of where the bugs are found, what plants they feed on and how much they move around. This information will be essential for deciding how best to respond should the Xylella bacterium arrive in the UK. 

If you are an experienced iRecord user, please submit your sightings on our iRecord webpage.

If you are not already familiar with iRecord, you may wish to use our simplified survey form.
