The catches of thirty aphid genera and species during 3 years in a suction trap at 40 ft and on a yellow cylindrical sticky trap at 5 ft at Rothamsted and Broom's Barn are tabulated. Suction‐trap catches were the more consistent but both were more effective at recording the first seasonal immigration of Myzuspersicae (Sulz.) and Aphis fabae Scop, than the British Sugar Corporation crop‐inspection scheme.
The catches show the differential attraction to yellow by different species, the effects of local vegetation, and the seasonal distribution of aphids that are crop pests or potential vectors of viruses.
