SWD trap captures in Ontario
Spotted wing drosophila trapping sites in Ontario, Canada. 2011.
Spotted wing drosophila (SWD) continues to appear in new and surprising places. The Ontario Ministry of Agriculture, Food, and Rural Affairs has been monitoring 50 sites in 16 counties across Ontario, much like the SWD*VMN in the southeast. SWD has now been detected at 21 of these monitoring locations, which new detections dramatically increasing in late September and early October, also similar to our detections in 2010 and 2011.
