SWD article in Growing Magazine

An article highlighting SWD motoring and management efforts throughout the US has just been published in Growing, a magazine for fruit and vegetable growers. Our monitoring effort is highlighted. When the article was written, there were no SWD captures in SC, NC, or VA. What a difference a few weeks make! We now have trap captures in 2 locations (see trapping data here). More on these captures later this week.
