This is an electronic download. The sugarcane aphid is a serious economic problem on grain sorghum in Mexico and the Caribbean, and the southern states along the US Gulf Coast. It also migrates from the south to more northern locations. This publication gives a brief overview of how to identify the aphid; information about its distribution, seasonal occurence, and the damage it causes; and how to manage it. By: Michael J. Brewer, Robert Bowling, J. P. Michaud (Kansas State University), and Alana L. Jacobson (Auburn University). (2 pp., 6 photos)
