  The information was drawn from book, websites, factsheets, and some original literature. This App is not a guide for specialists. In many groups, such as the bark beetles and aphids, confirmation of species identity requires attention to details not visible in photos with comparisons to other similar species and use of keys.5/5(1). Aphids reproduce rapidly and their numbers reach a peak on the fruit host during late spring to early summer. Winged aphids develop and migrate away from the fruit tree or bush in early summer, sometimes leading to the infestation on teh fruit host dying out. The aphids spend the summer on herbaceous plants.

The apple maggot typically strikes in late June to mid-July. Adult maggots lay eggs in the summer inside fruit. Apple aphids appear in May through early July; the most prominent symptom is curling leaves. Shiny black eggs will be visible in early spring. Leafhoppers appear at the end of May or early June. Of the plus books produced in the popular “APS PRESS Compendium of Plant Disease Series, Compendium of Apple and Pear Diseases and Pests, Second Edition, is the biggest ever and among of the most double the size of the previous edition, it boasts a total of color images and more figures than any other compendium to date, offering second-to-none diagnostic .

Unlike the rosy apple aphid, green aphids may live on the apple tree all year, breeding continuously during the summer. In August and during the autumn months, these aphids are found almost exclusively on watersprouts or terminal branches of young trees that are still growing, and where male and female sexual forms are produced. Ants and Aphids on my Apple Tree I got home from a long trip for work and hear that one of the new apple trees isn't doing so well. "It's covered in ants!" I know right away what's going on. The ants are herding aphids! Yeah, yeah, you think I'm a few fries short of a happy meal and this just seals the deal. But I tell ya it's true.

They excrete a sugary substance called honeydew which sticks to the upper surfaces of the leaves, making them appear glossy. In time the sticky honeydew will become covered in a black fungus.

Eriosoma lanigerum. Pest description and crop damage Adult woolly apple aphids are reddish to purple and are completely covered with a thick, woolly white wax.

The insects feed on roots, trunks, limbs and shoots, producing galls at the site of the infestation. Green apple aphids are usually found close to major veins on the underside of the leaf. They suck sap from the leaf. Heavy infestations reduce vigour and growth of shoots. Feeding reduces bud size and internodes’ length, and causes leaf curling.

Aphid damage. Scads of aphids and ants on apple trees. I said to them, “You may have won the battle, but the war ain’t over yet!” So I shook a bunch of ants off the tree, smashed a bunch of aphids and ants and stormed off to formulate my new scheme.

Green apple aphids are more likely to become a problem later in the season than rosy apple aphids. If green apple aphid populations begin to increase, monitoring should be conducted to determine if treatment is necessary. Many factors can influence the amount of potential damage, such as tree structure and age, time of year, and apple variety.

Woolly Apple Aphids. Woolly apple aphids attack twigs, roots and areas near pruning wounds. If left untreated, these aphids may cause the development of cankers that can eventually kill parts of the tree.

Aphids represent one of the world's major insect pests, causing serious economic damage to a range of temperate and tropical crops. These range from grain crops and brassicas to potato, cotton, vegetable and fruit crops.

This book provides a definitive reference volume on the biology of aphids, their pest status, and how to control them. It includes approximately 30 specially commissioned 4/5(1). Rosy apple aphid overwinters on apple trees as eggs that are laid in autumn in bark crevices and around the buds on the shoots.

These eggs hatch in spring as the leaves begin to emerge from the buds. While sucking up sap, the aphids secrete chemicals into the foliage. Aphids feed on foliage using needle-like mouth parts to suck out plant juices.

When present in high numbers, certain species reduce tree growth and vigor. Apple scab: Apple scab causes leaves to develop olive-brown spots with a velvety texture that later turn brown and become cork-like in texture.
