Aphids are often found feeding in dense groups on leaves or stems. Unlike leafhoppers, plant bugs and other insects that might be confused with them, most aphids do not move rapidly when disturbed.
• Green, yellow, brown, red, or black (depending on the species and the plants they feed on)
• Small, pear-shaped insects; long legs; antennae
• Pair of tube-like structures called cornicles project backwards out of the hind end of their bodies distinguishes aphids from all other insects.
• Select species appear waxy or woolly.
