Aphids on Plants

APHIDES or Aphis are sucking, soft-bodied insects, which swarm on the new soft rose shoots and buds and on many other plants.
They vary in colour from green ‘green fly’, black, grey and even yellow. A family of aphids clustered thickly can soon do great deal of damage to soft growth unless checked. They multiply rapidly. Both winged and wingless sorts are present. Spraying with soapy water will control them. Or a strong jet of water directed from the hose nozzle is often effective to dislodge and discourage them.
