Alate females are mostly black, with a greenish abdomen; otherwise they are similar to the apterae.
During flowering of weeds more aphidophagous predators were observed on the apple trees within the strip-sown area than in the control area.
Aphididaeon apple. High densities in spring can disfigure fruit.
Any errors in identification or information are ours alone, and we would be very grateful sphis any corrections. Coexistence between species can be very intimate as in the picture below where an Aphis pomi fundatrix is living in the midst of a Pom plantaginea colony.
Environmental Entomology, 15 6: The method of counting the number of aphids on the most infested leaf provided the most accurate assessment of aphid density, but it required the most effort.
The presence of the ants is beneficial to the aphids as the ants deter and remove predators that might feed on the aphids; these include the larvae of the midge Aphidoletes aphidimyza and parasitoids which lay their eggs in the aphid nymphs. Population structure of Aphis spiraecola Hemiptera: Aphidoletes aphidimyza tended to aggregate oviposition in high-density aphid colonies, but this aggregation resulted in predation that was only very weakly spatially density dependent.
One COI haplotype of A. Aphis pomi has been recorded on 24 species of the Malus genus. The colony see picture below was again attended by Formica rufa.

Most of the colonies we have found have been ant attended, which may explain why we have found rather few instances of predators attacking Aphis pomi.
