Abstract

Effective aphid pest management strategies depend on a knowledge of the economically important species present in an area and their flight behavior. A suction trap at UC Davis collected 60 aphid species, most of which are economically important. The trap detected the first specimens of the Russian wheat aphid found in northern California.
