Here's a curious thing.....we have an aphid plague in Angus just now...yuck! Today I was watching them flying about in the air and hoping that it would rain so that they would all get splatted to ground. Now, we had very heavy showers this afternoon and so I watched them again...flying around in the heavy rain...totally unaffected by the heavy, large, raindrops......eh? How does that work then? Anyone know how an aphid dodges the raindrops?
