The life cycle of M. persicae was found to be polymorphic with all four r eported life cycle categories observed in Life cycle variation in Myzus persicae 315 In some cases, use of insecticides for other, more damaging This procedure reduces the ability of aphids to spread M. persicae is heteroecious holocyclic (host alternating, with sexual reproduction during part of life cycle) between Prunus (usually peach) and summer host plants. Cabbage stem flea beetle (Psylliodes chrysocephala) • Adult feeding damage may threaten establishment (100% crop loss) • Larvae cause loss of vigour, stem wilting, delayed flowering, stem collapse; increased risk to frost and disease Damage Dewar Crop Protection. The dispersants typically produce about 20 offspring, which are always wingless. Common and widespread weeds such as field bindweed, Convolvulus arvensis; lambsquarters, Chenopodium album; and redroot pigweed, Amaranthus retroflexus, are often cited as important Stoetzel et al. During the years 1995-1999 the life cycle category of 2797 clones of Myzus persicae (Sulzer) was examined.
