APHIDS ATTACKING BROMELIADS.
Twice in the last 7 or 8 years, I've been
told about or have been shown yellow aphids attacking potted
bromeliads. The aphid specialist I contacted said they were rice root
aphids, not of great interest. But now there's an aphid specialist who
wants to study them. If anyone has some now or in September, please mail
them to me to hand over to the specialist -- maybe this will help us learn
something new. --
