Chilli Aphids 

Chilli aphids are small in size but the damage caused by them is of great significance. They are pear-shaped insects with long, thin tail-like appendages they range in colour from green to brown. Aphids suck the sap from the leaves, causing the leaves to curl, the plants to grow stunted, and the flowers and fruits will be misshapen.
