Sugarcane Aphids Moving North to the Texas Panhandle

After last week's confirmation of Sugarcane aphids (SCA) in Ochiltree county, we have more confirmations and reports of the SCA infesting more fields in the Texas Panhandle. There is confirmation that SCAs are in Castro, Carson, Deaf Smith, Gray, Hansford, Oldham, Randall, and Wheeler counties. And there are reports of them being found in Moore county. Fields in Donely, Carson, Deaf Smith, Oldham, and Randall counties were at treatable levels.
