Aphids are small, soft-bodied insects. Their feeding habits can lead to stunted plant growth, deformed and discolored leaves, and the production of galls on leaves, stems, or roots. Aphids are vectors of plant viruses, capable of transmitting viruses from one infected plant to other healthy plants. Integrated pest management (IPM) combines a variety of pest management techniques and strategies to either reduce pest populations or minimize their economic impact while maintaining plant quality. This factsheet provides guidance on using IPM to control aphids. (4 pages)
