Boston’s WBZ Interviews Dill on New Fruit Fly Threat

University of Maine Cooperative Extension pest management specialist Jim Dill was interviewed by Boston’s Channel 4 (WBZ) television station for a news report on the threat to blueberries and other soft-skinned fruit by a pest new to Maine and New England, the Drosophila Suzukii fly, which is far more damaging to crops than traditionally common fruit flies. Dill also appeared in a Channel 7  report on the fruit fly.
