You should be careful if your dog is eating the hop cones.

This is quoted from Wikipedia:

"Hops, a plant used in making beer, can cause malignant hyperthermia in dogs, usually with fatal results. Certain breeds, such as Greyhounds, seem particularly sensitive to hop toxicity, but hops should be kept away from all dogs. Even small amounts of hops can trigger a potentially deadly reaction, even if the hops are "spent" after use in brewing."


I've heard this same information from other sources as well.

Default Hop Merchant

I found these critters chewing holes in the leaves of my second-year plant. I believe it's the caterpillar of the Eastern Comma butterfly, also known as the Hop Merchant. They hang out on the undersides of the leaves. So far, the plant seems to be outgrowing the damage, but I've been hand-picking the ones I can reach just to be on the safe side.

Not sure what type of caterpillar this is but it was definitely eating the leaf. I found it on a Centennial.

The damage is very similar to the Japanese beetle damage, but I will post one tomorrow.

Complete BS, I asked my vet for verification. wikipedia.org is the biggest source of dis-information there is.

Two striped leafhopper (in nymph stage).

Found these on cascade plants and it took me a few weeks to identify. I grew up 4-h'ing every year as i grew up on a farm, and i did entomology like 7 years and did special projects on insects in grade and middle school. Low and behold I was explaining the little turds to my mom and dad tonight and sure enough about an hour later, she sent me links with exact pics. I was so depressed, but my moms a smart cookie. I still felt retarded as I though t might me some kind of cottony scale.

P.s. They are not affected by Sevin, I drowned one in it last week and it laughed a me before I identified it. Some species are treatable with malathion from what I can gather, but seems pyrethians are effective. The pic directly below is mine, the link is a way better image
