The aphid-transmissible Potato virus Y is a major problem in seed potato production (Valkonen , 2007).
The aphid flight activity was monitored from mid-June to the end of August with a suction trap and with yellow pan traps in 2007 and 2008.
Previous studies have concluded that potato colonising aphids are not the main vectors of Potato virus Y.
