Green spruce aphid (Elatobium abietinum) is an insect that infests spruce trees. Unlike most aphids, the green spruce aphid is active and causes damage to spruce trees (Picea species) over the winter months. This aphid differs from most other aphids by being active from autumn to spring, instead of in the spring and summer. This pest is particularly damaging in mild winters, which enable it to breed more rapidly.
