      Spotted aphids – clover or alfalfa? In Australia, Therioaphis trifolli refers to two genetically distinct, host specific aphids, the spotted alfalfa aphid and spotted clover aphid. Therioaphis trifolli is a distinct looking aphid species. Pale yellow-green in colour and about 2 mm long as adults, they have 4 to 6 rows of tiny black spots. Pea aphid and spotted alfalfa aphid are the most prevalent species in the High Plains. Spotted alfalfa aphid has been found damaging dryland alfalfa. Identification (life cycle and seasonal history) Pea and blue aphids are quite similar in appearance but pea aphid is yellow-green in color while the blue alfalfa aphid is bluish-green, although.

      Abstract. Survival and reproduction of the spotted alfalfa aphid, Therioaphis maculata (Buckton), were similar to those of the pea aphid, Macrosiphum pisi (Harris), at all combinations of three temperatures and three humidities in studies using three alfalfa clones differing in resistance to both aphids. Differences among clones and among temperatures in Cited by: Alfalfa Insect Management – Spotted Alfalfa Aphid – K-State Research and Extension - June Description: Spotted alfalfa aphids are pale yellow-green in color with conspicuous rows of black spots on their backs. Each spot is tipped with a short spine. The winged form has smokey-colored areas along the wing veins.

Many insecticides will kill the spotted alfalfa aphid—Therioaphis maculata (Buckton)—but even the most effective chemicals provide only a temporary relief from aphid attack. In most infested areas chemical control of the aphid is .

The spotted alfalfa aphid is a small, pale yellow or grayish aphid with four to six rows of spined black spots on its back. Mature females may either be wingless or have wings with smoky areas along the veins.

This aphid prefers warm weather and is generally found during summer months. The spotted alfalfa aphid is found throughout the United States and is occasionally found in Iowa alfalfa. The spotted alfalfa aphid is smaller than most aphids in alfalfa, reaching one-eighth inches in length.

Spotted alfalfa aphid definition is - a highly destructive Old World aphid (Therioaphis maculata) that is established in the U.S. in warmer areas and causes yellowing and stunting of.

Damage: Spotted alfalfa aphids prefer to feed on alfalfa, although they will infest some clovers. These aphids inject a toxic salivary secretion into the plants, which causes yellowing at the feeding site and along the veins of the leaf.

The location of the spotted alfalfa aphid on the plant is greatly influenced by the relative humidity. Integrated control of the spotted alfalfa aphid has been achieved in California.

Economic thresholds were established so that insecticides are applied only when damage is imminent. Native predators, introduced parasites, and entomogenous fungi now keep the spotted-alfalfa-aphid populations below the economic threshold for most of the year.

Spotted alfalfa aphid book   The spotted alfalfa aphid is smaller than pea aphid, reaching 1/8 inches in length. This aphid is also distinguished because it is pale yellow with dark spots covering the abdomen. Unlike the pea aphid or blue alfalfa aphid, the spotted alfalfa aphid can successfully reproduce in warm temperatures (> 90˚F).

Several other insects also prey on these pests. Species of wasps, specific parasites of the spotted alfalfa aphid, have been imported from the insect's native home and are now becoming established in the United States. Whether some of our native parasitic insects will attack this pest remains to be seen.

Pea aphid and blue alfalfa aphid are similar looking, both green in color (except for the pink pea aphid biotype), and are a problem primarily in the spring.

Spotted alfalfa aphid is a yellow, hot-weather aphid and is a problem only on a few cultivars. Aphids in alfalfa have many natural enemies. Also see the key to aphids common to alfalfa.

When alfalfa is more than half grown (stem lengths 10—15 inches long), the plant can tolerate 40 or more aphids per stem with little yield loss. Spotted Alfalfa Aphid.
