I've completed the second in a series of spotted wing drosophila (SWD) factsheets. This one addresses post harvest concerns about SWD and summarizes larval sampling methods. As with much relating to SWD, there is a lot we don't yet know, but this factsheet provides a starting point for those interested in developing a sampling plan for larval SWD.
Please note, factsheets are shared via Google Documents, which is great for quickly and easily posting files but does sacrifice image quality. If you would like a printer quality digital copy of this factsheet. Please email me.
You can find the first factsheet on SWD biology and management in North Carolina caneberries here.
