Can Aphids Fly?
Yes, some aphids can fly.
More Info: Aphids have wings depending on need, that is, colony density and plant host conditions. The flight patterns are random, the insect being carried in the direction of the wind rather than a predetermined destination.
Do Aphids Have Wings?
Aphids may have wings, although they do not always. In general, the winged aphid is the result of overcrowding. Of the two most common aphid species, the green peach aphid and the melon aphid, the green peach variety is more likely to produce the winged adults at a lower population density compared to the melon aphid. Temperature can also have an effect on the physical development, as a temperature of 75°F is ideal for the green peach aphid while higher temperatures are optimal for the melon aphid.
Do Aphids Migrate?
Aphids do migrate, which is one of the reasons why they are such serious pests. Aphids parasitize and destroy crop and garden plants by sucking the sap from them. They don't actively migrate but are so tiny, that they can be blown from place to place by the wind. Unsuspecting humans can also carry them from one region to another on food plants.
