Unusually for an aphid, Aulacorthum solani can go through the sexual soalni on many different plant species – but, in temperate climates, most of their population overwinters as nymphs or apteraeespecially on potato sprouts and on many glasshouse plants and wild species such as foxglove Digitalis. Indirect damage is caused by honeydew production and virus transmission. Seed potatoes are very susceptible to infection at this stage, and so potato stores should be fumigated when migration has finished, ensuring even distribution of smoke.
