  1. woolly alder aphid

    The woolly alder aphid (Paraprociphilus tessellatus) is a species of aphid that primarily feeds on alder trees and maple trees. They are known for their distinctive woolly or waxy white coating, which serves as a form of protection against predators and harsh weather conditions. Their infestation often results in the formation of galls on the host plant and can cause significant damage if not controlled. Despite these, they serve as a critical food source for various types of birds and insects.
