The temporal distribution of egg hatch for Homalodisca vitripennis (Germar) and H. liturata Ball was investigated at different constant incubation temperatures. The 2 Homalodisca species did not differ significantly in their daily hatching patterns. Practical implications of these findings for the control of Homalodisca spp., especially the pestiferous H. vitripennis, are discussed.
