About a week ago we began noticing these bugs on young bamboo shoot. The original bamboo clump which is about 3 years old and has never been attacked before. The new shoot is about half a foot away from the main clump.
They are also attracting ants with the liquid they secrete and the bamboo shoot is stunted. We tried spraying them with conventional bug spray but they come back after a day or so. I have seen nymphs small and large,some developing wings and a whopping adult. (shown on pic attached.)
Please help and thanks in advance. I do not know if garbage enzyme works but my batch is only ready in 2 month's time. Gah!
