Title: Farmers should choose pesticides that kill soybean aphids but spare their natural insect enemies
Author: Frewin, A.J.; Schaafsma, A.W.; Hallett, R.H.; Institute for Community Engaged Scholarship
Abstract: To protect the parasitic wasp Aphelinus certus, a natural enemy of the soybean aphid, soybean farmers should select pesticides that kill soybean aphids but spare the wasp. Potential pesticides to use in soybean pest management plans that are not harmful to A. certus include: spirotetramat, Beauveria bassiana, mineral oil, and flonicamid.
