Spotted Wing Drosophila Confirmed in NJ

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

In addition to Virginia, we just received a report today that the first spotted wing drosophila (SWD) were detected in blueberry fields in New Jersey during the week of July 7. Although we have not found any yet in our limited survey (only one location), it is important that you monitor for this important pest. The following links provide information about identification, monitoring and controls.
