Aphids Information.
Introduction of Aphids Information:- Also known as green flies or plant lice, aphids belong to

Hemiptera family. There are about 20 species of aphids, often distinguishable by a different color; their
small body, long 1-3 millimetres ( 0.04 – 0.12 inches ) , is oval, with short legs; some species have wings,
which make aphids fly for many miles, while other species have no wings. Aphids have a stinging-sucking

mouth apparatus, with which drill the surface of leaves, small branches and buds, to suck plants sap. In
general they attack many cultivated plants without distinction, from the vegetable to the ornamental ones;
very common are rose and tobacco aphids.

Aphids Information – Aphids of leaves are mainly damage young plants sucking their sap. Yet, at the
same time, they emit a poison which makes leaves curl. This forms a sort of “hideouts” made by leaves –
as we can easily see at the end of many branches – that make hard to reach aphids by birds and other

predators; this way at least a couple of aphids remains there to propagate the species.

Aphids Information – Since aphids of leaves weaken plants sucking their sap, they make branches
deform. In decorative gardens and orchards this effect is strongly undesirable, since trees should have

their proper shape, for aesthetic or productive reasons. Another damage brought by aphids of leaves is
the transmission of viruses harmful for plants, through their saliva. This could bring serious damages,
above all in orchards and professional rose gardens.
