  • 1. Aphids are notorious pests of world agriculture. Even so, uncertainty persists as to their capacity for successful aerial dispersal. Evidence exists that, under some conditions, aphids can be wind‐borne over long distances, i.e. hundreds of kilometers over desert or sea. It has been argued, in the recent past, that this phenomenon may be part of a strategy to locate fresh host plants in new distant areas. However, the proportion of these insects successfully colonizing new hosts is unknown.
