This was one of 4 traps being monitored at this site (the other three traps caught no SWD). The report comes in from Annie Mills, field technician with Laura McDermott, extension educator with the Eastern NY Commercial Fruit Program.

There was a raspberry planting nearby in previous years. This was taken out and new raspberries were planted next to the blackberry planting. No fruit on the raspberries yet and the blackberries are currently still in bloom.
