[NAFEX] goshdarn leaf hoppers

Every season just as my apple grafts begin to emerge they are pounced upon
by leaf hoppers, those tiny chlorophyll vampires that seem devoid of natural
predators here. They are my main cause of graft failure. Lady bugs usually
eventually control the aphids but weekly applications of Sevin have been my
only solution for hoppers. Does anyone out there have another idea?
Something requiring less work.
On another pest subject, a few years back at a NAFEX meeting a lecturer
spoke of a natural predator for tarnished plant bugs. Has this predator
become commercially available?
