Melon aphids tend to feed in clusters, and in numbers they can cause extensive damage to plants, including.   Nervous system insecticides, such as malathion, Dursban (chlorpyrifos), and Orthene (acephate), are labeled for use on many shade trees and ornamental plants for aphid control. Take a copious amount (as many as you can collect) of the insect you wish to repel and grind up their bodies.

Aphids are small (1⁄16–1/8 inch long), soft-bodied insects commonly called plant lice or ant cows. Virtually every plant has at least one aphid species that attacks it. These small insects are masters of reproduction and are often found in great numbers on stems or leaves. Some species even feed on the roots of plants. They range in color from green to brown, red, black or purple.

Many generations can occur in one season. The good news is that they tend to move rather slowly and aphid control is. Aphids like the low light levels and cool conditions of spring and fall.

They will attack all plant parts but prefer young, succulent growth. There are many species of aphids, some named after the plants they attack, such as pea aphids and peach aphids.

Aphids: Aphids, also known as plant lice, are among the most destructive tree bugs. These plant-sucking insects feed on the sap of a tree or shrub. Their excrement, referred to as honeydew, is commonly mistaken for sap dripping from a tree’s canopy.

Many species of Aphids (sometimes called plant lice) occur on ornamental trees and shrubs in Pennsylvania. Certain species feed on foliage, others on twigs and branches, flowers or fruit, and some on roots.

They feed on both coniferous and deciduous plants. Effective control of Aphids has been a problem to homeowners and landscape managers for. Wrap the stems of other plants in tape and apply the product to the tape rather than the stem.
