SWD Updates

[10/12/2018] A blueberry grower in New York tested two different weights of netting to keep SWD out.

[9/6/2018] With the wine grape harvest coming soon, and a recent increase in Spotted Wing Drosophilla (SWD) counts, via our weekly trapping network, growers should be aware of the potential contamination of juice or wine if berries are exposed to SWD just prior to harvest.
