Spotted Wing Drosophila Confirmed in Virginia

Joanne Whalen, Extension IPM Specialist; jwhalen@udel.edu

The first reports of the presence of spotted wing drosophila (SWD) were confirmed last week in Virginia. Although we have not found any yet in our limited survey (only one location), it is very likely that it could make it to our area this season. The following link from Virginia provides more information about this important potential new pest. http://www.virginiafruit.ento.vt.edu/SWD.html
