an insect in the family Aphididae sometimes called a plant louse
a tiny insect with a soft body. Aphids eat the sweet sap of many plants, which makes them sweet to eat, too. Aphids are one thing that ladybugs like to eat.
A small soft-bodied and slow-moving insect that feeds by sucking the juices of plants.
Aphids come in a spectrum of colors and a number of different sizes. Some have wings, others do not. They are all soft bodied insect pests that suck plant juices; damage eventually may lead to distorted growth, including curled leaves. Though they multiply quickly, forming clusters on stems and the undersides of leaves, they are controllable. Often, a simple blast of water will suffice, injuring and knocking aphids from branches. Soapy water (see also insecticidal soap), as well as garlic water, can also be effective. There are many beneficial insects that control aphid populations; among them are ladybugs, predatory midges, lacewings, and parasitic wasps. If none of these are already present in your garden, you may consider releasing one or two species if aphid problems persist.
