Description: The Saratoga spittlebug, Aphrophora saratogensis, so called because it was first collected in Saratoga County, N. Y., is a native insect that is destructive to several species of pine in Eastern North America. It occurs where ever its host grows, from Maine to Minnesota in the United States and in the southern portions of the adjacent Canadian Provinces. The adult of this insect often destroys young pines, especially in plantations where its alternate hosts are abundant. Natural-grown and large trees usually are less injured
