Spotted wing drosophila (SWD) is an invasive fly that has become a serious pest of small fruit crops, like blueberries, raspberries, and day neutral strawberries.

In this webinar, members of a national team of scientists will share information on how SWD populations develop over time, how they move during the day and throughout the year, and how they survive during the winter. We will then share how this information can improve SWD management practices in small fruit production.

The webinar can be accessed here on November 5th at 1pm EST: (you'll be asked to complete a short registration form before the webinar starts).
