ABSTRACT
The article reports that nine Myzus persicae and 27 potato aphids were caught in Broom's Barn water traps in England during the May 7-13, 2008 period. According to Mark Stevens of research station Broom's Barn, all of the Myzus were caught in the Bury and Wissington factory areas, with four of the nine Myzus trapped at Potton, Bedfordshire.
