The mirid bug damages on grapevine were observed not only on young shoot and leaves (decoloration, deforming, and perforation) but also on fruits (black spot, corky scar, and young fruit shattering). Among 159 fields surveyed throughout the country, 113 fields (71%) were damaged, and the damages were relatively severer in the chief producing districts of grape vine, such as Gimpo, Anseong, Naju, Gimcheon, Buyeo, Daejeon, Yesan than other districts where grapevine yards were not concentrated. The severest shoot damages were observed in two grape vine yards of Naju (85%) and Gimpo (65%) in 1999. Three species of virid bugs were recognized on grape vine tree, Apoygus spinolae (Meyer-Dur), Apolygus lucorum (Meyer-Dur), and Orthotylus (Melanotrichus) flavosparsus(Sahlberg). Among them, A. spinolae was dominant species in the number of specimens collected. A. spinolae were collected on 10 host plants including Vitis vinifera L., Prunus armeniaca var. ansu Max., and prunus serrulata var. spontanea(Max.) Wils. and etc., and A. lucorum were collected on 10 species of plants, including Artemisia iwayomogi Kitamura, Artemisia princeps var. orientalis(Pampan) Hara and etc. Both A. spinolae and A. lucorum distributed widely in Korean grapevine yards.
