Spotted wing drosophila identified at Mountain Grove

Vickie Baumer collected the spotted wing drosophila (SWD) traps that she put out last week. She identified 11 SWD in the High Tunnel trap next to primocane bearing raspberries, 6 SWD in the trap on the east side of the blackberries and 2 SWD in the trap on the west side of the blackberries. Dr. Maciej Pszczolkowski, Associate Research Professor of Entomology, verified the identification.
