giant bark aphid
Longistigma caryae (Harris, 1841)

Descriptor: Feature(s)
Description: As aphids feed, they excrete a sticky, clear liquid known as honeydew that often forms a sticky coating on automobiles, picnic tables, lawn furniture, and plants underneath plants where aphids are feeding. A gray-black, sooty mold soon begins to grow on the sugar-rich honeydew, and it not only blocks sunlight and disrupts photosynthesis, but it can damage the finish on cars, chairs, tables or other objects.
