Chautauqua County – first report

Two male SWD were caught on August 7 in traps set in a red raspberry planting in Chautauqua County by Virginia Carlberg and Elizabeth Burgeson, Chautauqua County Cornell Cooperative Extension. With this report, SWD has been found across New York State, from Suffolk County north to Clinton County, west to Niagara County, and south to Chautauqua County. Sustained trap catch has occurred in the Finger Lakes and Lake Ontario Plains. Fruit infestation is being reported in Long Island and the Hudson Valley. Management tactics for SWD are now critically important. (Accumulated GDD 1458, day length 14:07)
