Host-plant: this aphid develops typically on peach (*) .
Eggs hatch in the early spring as soon as bud-burst begins. Dense colonies occur on the underside of leaves, ants protecting colonies against natural enemies. This species is non-migratory and overwinters in the egg stage, eggs being laid near buds. Apterous females in meridional regions may overwinter incracks on bark of the main branches of peach.
Affected leaves become severely curled and growth of shoots is greatly hindered (*) .
