The study presents two species of defoliating insects found in parks and ornamental gardens. These species are less known in our country and belong to Crambidae family. The study shows: the mode of attack, the unaesthetic appearance of the attacked plants in the landscape, the possibilities and difficulties to control these species of insects. The larvae of Cydalima perspectalis Walker are voracious and consume the leaves of Buxus plants. The larvae of Palpita vitrealis Rossi attack in groups Ligustrum plants until they defoliate them. Both species affect the decorative value of the plants up to their elimination from the landscape.
