Soybean aphid

Plain text source: 
The exotic pest was detected in most soybean growing districts during the 1999-2000 season, but is more prevalent on the coast... Crops become less attractive to aphids after early podding... Heavy aphid infestations often result in leaves being covered with sooty mould (due to honey dew secreted by the aphids)...
