Location: Fruit and Vegetable Insect Research

Project Number: 5352-22430-001-33
Project Type: Reimbursable

Start Date: Oct 01, 2011
End Date: Dec 31, 2013

Objective:
The research objectives include developing information on the basic ecology of spotted wing dropsophila (SWD): seasonal phenology, monitoring, and status of commercial fruit hosts.

Approach:
1. Compare trapping systems for optimal use in large-scale monitoring of SWD. 2. Determine effectiveness of pesticides to prevent damage/infestation by SWD. 3. Determins susceptibility of commercially produced fruits to SWD.
