SWD populations are building! The sustained capture in traps checked on on July 15, 2016, in Niagara County found 12 female and 6 male SWD. Berry crops are ripe and ripening. Summer raspberry harvest is nearing completion, fall raspberries are ripening and blueberry harvest is beginning and the crop is ripening.
Traps in Niagara County are being monitored by Liz Tee, technician, and Tess Grasswitz, Extension educator, with the Lake Ontario Fruit Program of Cornell Cooperative Extension.
