What is causing the white foam on my rose canes?

gwtamaraJanuary 1, 2013

There is a little greeny-yellow bug that hides inside a small blob of foam. It is called a spittle bug . It sucks the juices from the canes and may cause leaves to wilt. They can easily be removed with a jet spray of water from a hose.
