A Common green capsid. ( Lygocoris pabulinus )
Can be found on almost all herbaceous and woody plants, especially nettles.Females lay their eggs in the fruit trees leaves. When the eggs hatch in spring, they start feeding on gooseberries, potatoes, and other fruits and vegetables. They also can be found in the green houses sucking on peppers. The nymphs of the species are yellowish-green coloured, and are wingless. The adult species can fly from fruit to fruit. Aside from feeding on various crops, they also feed on aphids, caterpillars, and mites.
