A program supported by university researchers, farmers and soybean groups is introducing tiny parasitic insects to control soybean aphids in South Dakota and neighboring states. The hope is to better control the pest by introducing a natural predator. While it won't get rid of the problem, it will likely reduce the need to spray pesticide as often.
