Existing Bonsai A To Z Entry for Aphids


 - (Pests and Diseases)
Aphids - Bonsai Pests and Diseases Bonsai Care

These come in a variety of colours : greenfly, blackfly, whitefly or gall aphid. They colonise plants and suck the sap from the stems , leaves and fruit.

The first indication of an infestation is the curling and distortion of leaves. The woolly aphid can be a serious problem on pine, larch and beech, manifesting itself as a white, fluffy, sticky mass.

The Gall aphid can result in development of galls on leaves.

In all cases the application of a systemic insecticide should be sufficient to deal with the problem.
