New SWD Survey

We’d like to welcome Philip Fanning to the
Wild Blueberry research team!

He already has an important survey on spotted wing drosophila (SWD) for growers to fill out that will help to inform future research. 

We have been dealing with Spotted Wing Drosophila for a decade and it is time to transition from short-term crisis response to long-term goals.

The University of Maine is working with a national team of researchers to continue the development of new management strategies for this invasive pest. The University of Georgia is our partner in this important work, which is why you see their logo on the survey. 

Thank you for your time!

– Lily and Phil
