We will identify attractive olfactory and visual stimuli that can be integrated into an attract-and-kill device for spotted wing drosophila. Behavioral bioassays will be conducted in the laboratory and under semi-field conditions, followed by full-scale field evaluations. Research findings will be communicated regularly to the affected stakeholders.
