Hi I’m from UK and want to identify this bug I have found at the Base of my Normann Fir tree. The photo should show size but approx 5mm bigger than an and but smaller than a spider.

Hi Steve,
We believe these are Giant Conifer Aphids and each holiday season we receive several reports of infested Christmas Trees.  Often folks do not know the trees are infested until the trees begin to dry out and the Aphids either die or begin to search for a fresh food source.

Thanks Daniel, hope you have a great New Year.
Kind Regards, Steve
