The oak lace bug (Corythucha arcuata) is an insect pest of oak trees (Quercus spp.). It
can reduce growth and weaken trees, making them more susceptible to other pests
and diseases. This pest can be particularly damaging after several consecutive years
of severe infestation, combined with other stress factors such as drought. In large
numbers, lace bugs can cause public nuisance problems and have very occasionally
been reported to bite humans, which can result in dermatitis.
