How to use "Garden webworm" in context?
The garden webworm, Tetragnatha guatemalensis, is a small, grey, common webworm found principally in the Americas. It is a beneficial species that normally feeds on leaves, but can also feed on sap, flowers and fruit. Adults are about 20 mm long and have a stout body and long, pointed front legs. The front four legs are also enlarged and hairy. The larva is a grass-green, narrow-waisted feeder that pierces the tips of blades of grass and other green vegetation to suck up the sugars.
