I do my Living Better features Monday-Friday with The Morning Team between 5 and 9am on 84 WHAS; specifically, we run at around 6:55, 7:55, and 8:55. You can also hear me Saturday mornings from 9-10am.
I also do a regular feature for KNN called Kentucky Hearth and Home that runs weekdays at 11:40am, just in case you are travelling around the state and hear a familiar voice.

Spittlebugs are small green soft-bodied insects that are
quite interesting. The little green nymphs have a fabulous defense mechanism.
To protect themselves from sunburn and from predators, they will secrete a
frothy white substance that looks like spit.
They cover themselves with the “spittle” as they sit on the
stems or at leaf nodes. As the nymphs
feed on the plant sap, they excrete drops of undigested sap mixed with air. The
nymphs tail moves up and down as it excretes this spittle making bubbles. The
bug then covers itself with the spittle.
Spittlebugs are most noticeable in early spring as the
nymphs feed, but you may also see the adults the tiny (1/4”) adults hopping or
flying around in the summer. The adults
lay their eggs inside stems or between leaf blades and stems. As the eggs
hatch, the nymphs start feeding again.
If you see just a few spittlebugs on your plants, don’t
worry, they shouldn’t do much harm. You can spray them off the plants with a
strong high-pressure blast from your hose.
