The green peach aphid is attacked by a number of beneficial insect species which keep aphid densities suppressed much of the time. Increased resistance of the aphids to many commonly used organic phosphate insecticides has occurred. Intelligent use of selective insecticides, which destroy the pests but spare many beneficial insects, is one of the best approaches for green peach aphid control on peppers, according to these tests.
