Trap methods for SWD updated

The SWD monitoring trap instructions have been updated. The new pdf is at the same link as the older version, on the SWD Monitoring page. Using the yeast bait in an ampule floating in the apple cider vinegar drowning solution has resulted in increased numbers of fruit fly captures per trap. So far, though, no SWD have been captured in NY. Stay tuned.
