Distribution Map Updated, Terry County Probable

Robert Bowling, Extension Entomologist in Corpus Christi, has just updated the sugarcane aphid distribution map for Texas and the southern states. The 2015 map shows counties that are under treatment threshold, at threshold and over threshold. It also shows counties where aphids have been found on Johnsongrass but not sorghum. 

We received a photo from Terry County, Texas this morning that most likely shows a large colony of sugarcane aphids and we are waiting to confirm the identification before declaring Terry County positive.
