1. They are born pregnant
Most aphid species are born with another clone inside of its body. They will start producing clones just 7 days after being born and will birth up to 80 clones in its life span.
2. They've made a pact with Ants
3. Most species are chemical resistant
4. They are all tiny clones of their mothers
5. They send alarm signals to other aphids when in danger
It’s a common practice among insects to communicate with each other through pheromones. When an aphid is in danger it releases pheromones to alert the surrounding aphids. In response, the aphids will attempt to escape by dropping to the ground or walking away from the area.
6. They can change their color to look less appealing to predators
Aphids can use color polymorphism by producing carotenoids in their body. Carotenoids are the bright yellow, red, orange pigments we see in our vegetables. Production of carotenoids is usually only available in plants, fungi, and other microorganisms. Aphids have found a way to integrate genes with fungi in order to gain this ability.
7. They can grow wings and fly away when it gets too crowded.
Also known as wing polypheniesm. Aphids can produce winged or wingless clones in response to environmental cues. These cues can be overcrowded conditions, lack of healthy leaves, or presence of natural enemies. 
8. They don't need a male to reproduce
Aphids can either have a holocyclic or anholocyclic life cycle depending on the species. The anholocyclic life cycle is completed in complete absence of males. The aphids are all females and only birth females throughout the year. In the holocyclic life cycle aphids give birth to live clones during the summer/spring time. Once the weather cools down the aphids will start to produce male offspring and switch to laying eggs instead of birthing live clones. These eggs overwinter and hatch in the spring time!
