Following this year’s 1st catch of SWD in Scentry baited traps last Monday (6/12), captures were also reported last week, near Northfield and on the St. Paul campus (Dr. Mary Rogers, Horticultural Science).  Most important, as of this past Monday (6/19), SWD were captured in traps at all of our 7-county Metro area on-farm locations.  

The first SWD adults of the season were collected in traps with Trece lures over apple cider vinegar, and in traps with Scentry lures over water on Monday, June 12th, at the Rosemount Research and Outreach Center in Rosemount, MN over fall bearing raspberries.
