Susceptibility ranking of more than 50 clones of hybrid Populus whips showed a wide range of attack ranging from none to very heavy. Clones with P. x jackii parentage were the most susceptible, whereas Carolina poplar was unscathed. Growth loss differed little between very heavily aphid-attacked whips and unattacked whips. Two insecticidal soaps adequately controlled the aphid but one caused some phytotoxicity to Populus.
