Lace bugs are small, beautifully sculptured bugs with piercing-sucking mouthparts which they use to feed on plant sap from leaves, usually from hardwood trees. Some species specialize on only one type of tree, while others are more general in their food tastes. Most lace bugs are small enough that they hardly get noticed.
