Chewing insects

Perhaps the most widely recognized type of insect damage to plants is chewing insect damage.  Chewing damage is caused by insects with mouth parts consisting of two opposing mandibles, or jaws.  Insects with chewing mouth parts are responsible for ragged leaves, foliage consumption, and mining in leaves, stems and trunks of plants.
