The green peach aphid, a common pest of spinach produced in the Arkansas River Valley of western Arkansas and eastern Oklahoma, is currently managed with foliar applications of neonicotinoid insecticides. Data reported herein indicate that the neonicotinoid insecticdes, imidacloprid and thiamethoxam, can also be applied to spinach seed and into the soil for effective aphid management.
