Adult rose leafhoppers fly away when disturbed, while the nymphs make long jumps to escape. Rose leafhoppers reproduce twice a year., They can breed especially well in warm summer weather. The eggs of the second generation overwinter in the bark of the sprouts of roses. The larvae, hatch in the spring and possess only rudimentary wings. The adult cicadas (fully developed and equipped with wings) move to their summer host plants in June, as well as to plants of the genus Capsicum. From mid-August to September, the females migrate back to the roses to store their eggs in the bark, which then overwinter.
Assassin bugs, ground beetles, predatory mites and spiders are natural enemies of rose leafhoppers. The rose leafhopper can be a serious problem in enclosed spaces if its natural enemies are absent.
