Name: Kathy F.
I am a children's book writer based in Tampa. I am
including the froghopper in a book I'm writing and have reached a brick wall.
My editor wants to know where in the world the froghopper lives.
Can you tell me?
Peterson Field Guide to Insects says froghoppers and spittlebugs are
"widespread and common." Spittle bugs are very abundant in the forest
preserves around Chicago.
A froghopper is a small insect, also called a spittlebug. It belongs to
[phylum - Anthropoda], [class - Insecta],[ order - Homoptera],
[family -Cercopidae] .
