One female SWD was caught on August 5, 2015 in a trap set in a blueberry planting in Herkimer County. Traps at this location are being monitored by Bernie Armata, Herkimer County Cornell Cooperative Extension Association. (GDD = 1601, day length = 14:18)
To date, only four counties (Clinton, Columbia, Dutchess, and Steuben) have not caught SWD. In these sites, fruit is either unripe or the crop is blueberry, which can be tricky for trap catch with our current traps.
