As if on cue, females move from the weeds they usually inhabit during winter and spring into the garden just when fruits and vegetables are ripe. They lay their brown cylindrical eggs in a line on a host plant. End to end, this line of eggs almost looks like a worm. The most common plants that L. zonatus damages are tomatoes, pistachios, pomegranates, satsuma oranges, and almonds. Controlling the number of this species of Leaf-footed Bug using row covers and removing weeds in the garden area can make it less likely the insect will wander into a vegetable patch. Removing piles of wood, fallen and empty pomegranates, and tree bark removes places adults like to take shelter during winter months. Though not considered a serious pest problem, this Leaf-footed Bug is not offering the farmer or gardener any benefits for its company.
