As the aphid
looks Like the aphid belongs to the group of smooth-hole insect pests. There are many kinds of aphids, so it can be very difficult to sort them out. The look depends on the appearance. There are other factors that equally affect the development of aphids. This is the rate of reproduction, the type of plants in which it lives, variability depending on the season. All house and house plants can be affected by this pest.
Large aphid settlements can be located on the roots and leaves of plants. Attack of the aphids can also be flowers. The fertility of the aphid is very high, and it multiplies at a rate of 25 larvae per day. The pest lives a sedentary life, spends most of his life on the lower flowers of plants and the side of the leaves, completely covering the shoots. When treating the family of blueberries, aphids pierce the proboscis cells of the leaves and the epidermis, sucking the young juice.

If the pest feed is very intense, excess juice accumulates on plants in the form of syrup.
