Hoppers include several insect groups such as froghoppers, leafhoppers, and treehoppers. They are generally characterized by small bodies with wings usually held like a sloping tent over the abdomen.
Hoppers leap from plant to plant and rarely fly. The nymphs of froghoppers (spittlebugs) produce a frothy substance (cuckoo spit) for protection against predators and the elements. Some ants provide protection to hoppers in exchange for the honeydew they excrete as waste. Most hoppers go unnoticed due to their small size, but their sticky waste is evident on cars parked under trees.
Hoppers feed on plant sap.
Widespread in grasslands and woodlands, including Ajloun and Amman.
