True Bugs, Hoppers and Aphids


Hemiptera is an insect order which includes the sub-orders; heteroptera (true bugs), auchenorrhyncha (hoppers and cicadas) and sternorrhyncha (aphids, scale, lerps and mealy bugs). Some of the species, particularly in True Bugs can often be confused with beetles. The difference being the mouth parts of true bugs and in fact all hemiptera species are the piecing and sucking type rather like having a proboscis.
