UK: New HDC factsheet available on aphids control in strawberry

Aphids are common and important pests of strawberry. They damage strawberry plants directly and two of the most common species, the strawberry aphid and the melon and cotton aphid, transmit virus diseases. New aphicides recently approved on strawberry (Calypso, Plenum, Chess) provide improved opportunities for chemical control and the current trend to growing strawberries under protection provides greater opportunity to control aphids biologically, by introductions of predators and parasites. This factsheet outlines the species that are economically important within strawberry production and outlines the various control options available.
