A brief introduction to the aphid life cycle. All living things have life cycles, and often these life cycles are wonderfully strange and unexpected.A species' life cycle is the series of predictable major events characteristic of a particular species, from its first moment of coming into being, until its considering the life cycle of an aphid, for instance, we can't avoid focusing.

Nymphs and adults feed on plant juices, attacking leaves, stems, buds, flowers, fruit, and/or roots, depending on the species. Most aphids especially like succulent or new growth.

Despite these facts there is far less agreement on how serious aphids attacks are, or how to treat them: Some organic gardeners believe that aphid attacks are simply a sign of weak plants and that good organic cultivation should prevent most serious consequences.
