Abstract

Soybean aphid (Aphis glycines, Hemiptera: Aphididae) is the most economically important insect pest of soybean in the North Central United States. While on soybean, aphids rapidly reproduce and can result in exponential population growth. An unmanaged aphid outbreak has the potential to reduce yield by 40 percent.
