Berry growers: spotted wing drosophila update

Spotted Wing Drosophila (SWD) flies are being caught in traps in southern NH, ME, and elsewhere in New England in low numbers. As in recent years, the UNHCE IPM program is scouting for SWD on several locations throughout southern NH. As a reminder, you can see the current week trap count, as well previous weeks' numbers - scroll way to the bottom of the page.
