- A autoecious species developing on strawberry.
- Winter eggs are deposited on the petioles of leaves or on the collars; fundatrices hatch in March and give rise to colonies which infest the collar, petiole and base of leaves. Alatae appear in late spring, attacking other strawberry trees.
- Leaves and petioles become sticky and covered with aphids and exuviae.
