Biological Control of the Cotton Aphid

D. D. Hardee, A. A. Weathersbee III, and M. T. Smith


Factors affecting the natural control of the cotton aphid, Aphis gossypii Glover, include biological control agents (parasites, predators, pathogens), use of fungicides at planting, and host plant characters. Learning to conserve and manage these factors should reduce or even eliminate the need for insecticides in cotton aphid management in the mid south.
