T. papillosa is responsible for extensive losses to litchi [Litchi chinensis] and lungan [Euphoria longana] orchards in South China, as nymphs and adults feed on the sap of leaves, flower buds, flowers and young shoots. Control measures include: catching of adults during hibernation, collection of eggs in spring, destruction of nymphs by beating or shaking them into receptacles covered with kerosene or preventing their re-ascent by sticky bands. In 2 collections, during 217 man-hours, 8231 bugs were caught at a cost of 2.09 (Canton silver) per 1000.
