Damage/ Signs of root aphid infestation
Infestations of root aphids inhibit plant growth, and they will be in lack of vigor. The damage they cause shows up as yellowing withered leaves that are often mistaken for nutrient deficiencies. So, plants that appear to be suffering from magnesium or iron deficiency should be checked carefully for root aphids. Fruits and blossoms on aphid-infested plants will be small and stunted, and generally, they have a severe effect on the fruiting ability of plants if left untreated. Moreover, attacks from root aphids can leave plants vulnerable to root rot, mildew, and disease.
In addition to the greenhouse, various types of root aphids attack a variety of trees including fir, walnut, and hickory. Root aphids can also cause problems for perennial herbs, including those grown in pots.
