Aphids and their colonies are excellent arenas in which to observe predators in action. A range of insects come to eat or parasitise the aphids or to drink their honeydew. Other books in the series deal with the natural history of two major groups of aphid predator, Hoverflies, and Ladybirds. This book complements them by focussing on the behavioural interactions among these and other visitors to a colony.
