- No mealy cabbage aphids (Brevicoryne brassicae) were caught in the suction traps this week.
- The willow-carrot aphid (Cavariella aegopodii) was caught in five suction traps this week. 174 male individuals were caught in suction traps across the country suggesting that the autumn migration back to willows is still continuing.
