Author(s) C. F. Koval, D. L. Mahr.

Landscapers and nursery operators in Wisconsin long considered honeysuckle a low-maintenance plant. The arrival of honeysuckle leaffolding aphids in 1980 changed that. Although honeysuckle still thrives in many locations with few insect or disease problems, the severity of aphid damage has necessitated chemical controls to keep many honeysuckles healthy. This fact sheet presents the signs and symptoms of leaffolding aphid damage and the best methods of control (2 pages; Revised in 1996).
