The conflicting relationships between aphids and men: a review of aphid damage and control strategies.

Abstract : In this review, after giving some figures on the economic impact of aphids on agricultural production, we describe the different mechanisms leading to yield losses (direct damage due to sieve drain and plant reaction, indirect damage, often the most important, due to virus transmission). Then, after a history of chemical control and of its limits, the main control strategies (chemical control with decision rules, plant resistance, biological control, farming practices) are reviewed in the light of an integrated pest management approach. Several topics tackled in this article are exemplified for cereal aphids, which are among the most important in Europe as direct feeders and virus vectors.
