Green monster eats leaves off of my citrus, and anything else it lands on. Even my strawberry plants. Easy to see, since they are so big, so I pinch them between two leaves and throw them in the trash. Funny, I'm going to a gardening class and teacher said it was a grasshopper. No way. It is definately a green katydid.

I know that they're pests, and they do a number on my buddleia and nicotiana every spring, but I just find them so pretty that I'm willing to sacrifice a bit of foliage for now...
