Videos of 2014 SWD trap contents! This year’s monitoring has begun and Anna Wallingford, Postdoctoral Associate in Greg Loeb’s lab at the Experiment Station in Geneva, created a youtube channel, Finger Lakes SWD monitoring, for weekly video updates (every Monday) on what the Loeb lab is finding in traps in and around Geneva. The videos will aim to inform the novice, pointing out various insects that can be found in the traps but also concentrating on those SWD look-a-like drosophilid species that pose challenges when trying to ID the rare, first SWD female(s).
Please post a comment on the Finger Lakes SWD monitoring youtube site or send Anna an email if you have any suggestions on how to make the videos more useful. Also include any ideas for “how to” videos/content that we might produce as Extension materials.
