Abstract:In laboratory studies on the life history of the green peach aphid, Myzus persicae (Sulzer), in Hawaii it was found that the aphids had 4 nymphal in stars, a total nymphal period of 6 to 11 days, with an average longevity of approximately 18 days. The per parturition period varied from 0 to 8 days. The alatae produced an average of approximately 80 nymphs, and the apterae, 84 nymphs, in 9.6 reproductive days. There was little difference in reproductivity and longevity of progeny of alatae and apterae.
