First catch in Rensselaer County

Three female and one male SWD were caught the week ending June 23, 2017 in two traps set on the edge of a blueberry planting in Rensselaer County. The two traps set within the crop did not catch SWD. The blueberries are not yet ripe, though the 'Duke' are about 10 days from picking.

This information is from Annie Mills, field technician, and Laura McDermott, extension educator, with the Eastern NY Commercial Horticulture Program, Cornell Cooperative Extension.
