Public Radio Interviews Handley on Invasive Fruit Fly

Comments from University of Maine Cooperative Extension vegetable and small fruit specialist David Handley were included in a Maine Public Broadcasting Network report on the Asian spotted-winged fruit fly, which has begun appearing in Maine and presents a new threat to soft fruit growers. The fly can bore into unripe soft fruit such as blueberries and raspberries to lay eggs and spoil fruit well before it is ripe.
