Abstract: Green peach aphid catches in yellow pan traps were lower than average during the 2002 season. The first catch of the season occurred on August 09. No significant flight occurred in 2002. Buckthorn aphid catches were close to average; the highest numbers were recorded in mid-July and mid-August. Common Potato aphid catches were lower than average and so were those of other aphid species.
