They may seem harmless, but they are actually a very harmful pest, that will slowly but progressively kill your plant by feeding on the sap of our Jasmine plant. Not only they are avid feeders of the essential juices of the Jasmine plant, but also, they are keen reproductive insects (able to reproduce asexually without mating), which will deposit thousand of eggs throughout our Jasmine plant.
