[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The green peach aphid, Myzus persicae lays its eggs in peach or nectarine just outside the winter. During late spring and summer the nymphs grow and become adults that migrate to many plants (are polyphagous), from adventíceas as Photo (Vicia sativa) to many vegetables (potatoes, beans, tomatoes, peas, cucumbers and zucchini) through many ornamental plants.
In autumn retires to spend the winter in greenhouses or specific host plants.
If we care our land farming and keeping it in balance without excess nutrients, their presence and attacks are sporadic and controlled by their natural predators, so we will not have any problem with them.
