Spotted wing drosophila monitoring for 2017 cherries

Elizabeth Beers, Washington State Extension scientist, tells Washington state growers that with cherry bloom behind them, and straw coming up rapidly, it’s time to finalize plans for trapping spotted wing drosophila (SWD), and thinking about which trap/lure combination might work best for your situation.

“We’ve come a long way since the ‘apple cider vinegar in a deli cup’ days, and now have quite a selection of commercial products to choose from in both traps and lures,” Beers said.
