The cotton aphid (Aphis gossypii)
The cotton aphid (Aphis gossypii) is a 0.9-1.8 mm small, round aphid with typical black spiracles. The colour varies from light yellow to dark-green, or sometimes almost black. It has a short cauda, no head front knobs, and antennae shorter than the body.

The cotton aphid originates from warmer regions where it is a pest on cotton and Cucurbitaceae. Thanks to the warm climate in greenhouses it can also survive northern winters. The cotton aphid is mainly a pest on greenhouse vegetables such as cucumber and melon, and on ornamentals such as chrysanthemum andhibiscus. Greenhouse strains do not change their host plant. After hibernation in the greenhouse this aphid can become a pest early in spring.

More than other aphid species, populations of cotton aphids can grow very fast. There exist several strains of cotton aphids, each with a specific preference for a certain host and resistance against pesticides.
