Kinda looks like a glassy winged sharpshooter or something

Seems it's an invasive in SoCal


If it is that..there is a wasp that loves them, but mantis, assassin bugs, lacewings provide some control.

Nailed it. Those eyes are very different then other beetles.

okay I wanted to get a bug confirm and make sure it’s not some weird species that needs special care to control




Hello,

It's a leaf hopper of some kind, probably in the genus Cuerna.

Unfortunately we don't have any predators for them. They're a bit too big for the beneficials that we sell.

The best thing I could suggest would be either Botanigard Maxx, Azaguard, or Molt-X.”

since when u google IPM for those, pyrethrum def was a top ipm, key is to not over use it in its cycle. So I woild suggest evergreen 5.o than rotate it every 7 days with moltx or botaniguard 22wp



my suggestion over botaniguard maxx is. A cheap & highly concentrated pyrethrum and adding botaniguard 22 wp to it or rotate or both ( made by same company that does pyganic 5.0, same thing just not organic labeled , but 3x less )
