Aphids are of countless families of the order Homoptera. The most familiar aphids are plant lice. They are tiny (usually less than 5mm/0.2 n long), somewhat pear-shaped insects that feed on the juice of many kinds of plants. To procure their food, they pierce stems and leaves with their thin, tube-like mouthparts. They produce a sweet substance, called honeydew, which draws ants and other insects.
