If you notice numerous masses of a foamy, spit-like substance in your evergreen trees this year you are not alone. I have received well over thirty phone calls and have been brought at least seven branch samples this week exhibiting this condition. Deep inside the foam is an insect commonly called a Spittlebug or froghopper. Spittlebug is not considered a serious pest, although this year we are seeing unusually high populations.

Im in Quebec City, on Sunday we had smoke from the forest fires up north blow into the city, but it just started raining this morning. I am about to leave. I will watch for this.
