Cuckoo spit is a white frothy substance secreted by the immature nymphs of a sap-sucking insect known as a froghopper. The larvae of this insect lodge in spit-like masses on leaves and shoots and feed off the plant sap, weakening and eventually killing the affected area. The "spit" can be removed by wiping with a damp cloth or spraying with clean water.
