Four aphid vectors of barley yellow dwarf virus (the English grain aphid, Macrosiphum avenae (F.); the oat Bird-cherry aphid, Rhopalosiphum padi (L.); the corn leaf aphid, R. maidis (Fitch); and the green bug, Schizphis graminum (Rodani)) were captured in traps employing 15-w filtered (BLE) and unfiltered (BL) ultraviolet fluorescent lamps emitting maximum radiation at 3650 A. The BLB trap captured 3 times as many English grain and corn leaf aphids as the BL trap. There were 2 times as many oat bird-cherry aphids and 6 times as many green bugs in the BLB trap as in the BL trap.
