Is this what I call a 'Spit Bug'? They are sap suckers like aphids and mature into brown leaf-hoppers.

[https://www.flickr.com/photos/edgehill] Yep seems to be the same thing, in the UK we call the mess they make 'Cuckoo spit' because it typically starts to appear around the same time the Cuckoos arrive here in spring. They turn into leafhoppers (aka froghoppers) some brown, some green, some with quite pretty colours..
