The soybean aphid suction trap network: sampling the aerobiological "soup".

Abstract

This paper focuses on the importance of the establishment of the soybean aphid suction trap network (STN) in providing information about seasonal migration patterns of the invasive soybean aphid (Aphis glycines) and monitoring of other insect species in the USA, providing new reports of aphid species beyond their known distributions and learning more about the distribution of other insect species, such as mosquitoes and thrips.
