Q:

What plants do aphids eat?

A:

Aphids feed on a variety of plant juices, including flowers, fruits trees and shrubs. They pose a major problem in gardens because they multiply quickly, eat the plants, and leave fecal matter on stems and leaves that attract other insects to the garden.

Aphids prefer new plants because they have supple leaves and fruits. As the aphids feed on trees and plants, they leave honeydew behind as fecal matter. This sticky substance is noticeable on plant leaves. As aphids eat garden fruit and plants, the size and shape of the fruit can get distorted. Various store-bought and homemade solutions are sprayed on plants to drive away aphids.
