Abstract

The Suction Trap Network (STN) is a set of suction traps currently located in Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Louisiana, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, Nebraska, and Wisconsin. In 2020, the STN did not stop because of Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19). The objective of the STN is to monitor aphids of agricultural interest, to detect invasive species, to track the phenology of soybean and Eastern flower thrips (vectors of Soybean Vein Necrosis Virus), and to count potato leaf hopper, pirate minute bugs, hover flies, and flying ants.
