7.28.14 SWD Update from Frank Drummond

Last week we captured SWD in traps that were placed in Jonesboro. So far, SWD has been captured in a few fields in Coastal Maine, the Blue Hill area and in Jonesboro. SWD was also captured in Nova Scotia last week. Please deploy traps if you have not already done so and monitor them at least on a weekly basis. If you capture a male SWD, protect your crop with an insecticide. (see the SWD ID factsheet on the wild blueberry website: Spotted Wing Drosophila Identification Guide).
