The soybean aphid (Aphis glycines) has been a significant economic pest in the North Central United States since 2000. In 2017, pyrethroid-resistant strains were first reported in some states, and entomology extension professionals like Iowa State University’s Erin Hodgson, Ph.D., set out to educate growers on the importance of integrated pest management techniques and to raise awareness about the emergence of pyrethroid resistance in the species.
