Aphid-lions use their long, curved mouthparts to catch, puncture and suck dry their prey. Food items include aphids, other small, soft-bodied insects and mites.

Aphid-lions develop into green lacewings that hunt similar prey and are recognized by their green colour, net-like wings and clumsy flight.
