Sugarcane aphid scouting card available

A laminated Texas sugarcane aphid scouting card is now available through most Extension Agents - IPM and Extension Specialists. The cards are also being distributed at sugarcane aphid extension meetings and field days. The card provides ready reference for scouting techniques, thresholds and shows what approximate numbers of aphids look like on a leaf.

An electronic version of the card is available here.

This card is hot off the presses and we are working on a way for people to send a stamped, self addressed envelope to have one mailed to them.

The card has photos of sugarcane aphids but does not have information on differentiating it from other aphid species. That information is available here.
