Are these aphids?

Hi, I am wondering if the bugs and eggs on the plants in the photos belong to aphids and if so if anyone has some tips on how to control them.

Also found these bugs and eggs on my plants too.. similar size and different colour.

Any thoughts?

RE: Are these aphids?

Did you intend to include more images? Hope so, because it's difficult to see what you're showing us. I can tell you that those are not aphid eggs but an improved image might lead to an accurate ID.

RE: Are these aphids?

Yes, better pix please. The first pic might be a jumping spider and her eggs but its too distant to tell. The second pic I can't make out at all.


RE: Are these aphids?

Given that the leaves they are on don't seem to be damaged, I'd say you aren't dealing with a pest. Probably some harmless denizens of the wild.

In other words, you don't control them - you leave them alone.


RE: Are these aphids?

What little I can see does not appear to be Aphids, but I have provided a link to a very good web site about them anyway.

Here is a link that might be useful: Aphid control
