How to Manage Pests
UC Pest Management Guidelines
The wingless forms of the honeysuckle aphid are small- to medium-size, predominantly grayish green with dark antennae, legs, cornicles, and cauda (tail-like structure). The body may be variably dusted with a fine white wax. The winged forms have a green abdomen mottled with darker green and a dark patch around the base of each cornicle.
Like other aphids this one also serves as a vector of a number of viruses. It may occasionally build up on carrots but injury is generally not common.
