This publication is a free electronic download. Aphids damage cotton by sucking sap from plants, stunting plant growth and yield, and fouling leaves and bolls with honeydew--all of which translates into economic loss for cotton producers. This publication discusses the three species of aphids that feed on cotton plants in Texas, scouting, cultural management, biological control, chemical control, and action thresholds. By Suhas S. Vyavhare and David Kerns (6 pages, 8 photos, 2 tables)
