The authors review the invasion history and distribution of the soybean aphid, as well as its biology and the feeding damage it causes. Biological control, host plant resistance, and other factors affecting soybean aphid populations are also discussed.

Though at present management of this pest is primarily through broad-spectrum insecticides, biological control has a significant impact on soybean aphid population growth, and aphid-resistant soybean varieties are becoming increasingly available.

The article will be useful to soybean growers, educators, individuals working in crop protection, and others involved with soybean production.
