Caption: Aphid. Coloured Scanning Electron Micrograph (SEM) of an aphid feeding on a hairy plant. This bug (order: Homoptera) is also known as a plant louse or greenfly. Its head is seen with long antennae and two compound eyes (red). The tube-like mouthpart penetrates the plant and is used to suck the sap from plant veins. Three pairs of walking legs are present. Aphids multiply rapidly. They are serious pests of flowers, vegetables and some fruit trees. Magnification: x28 at 6x7cm size.
