First catch in Cayuga County

Two female SWD were caught in a summer raspberry planting on June 26, 2017, one each in a trap set on the edge and a trap set within the planting. About 40% of the fruit at this location is showing color and ripe for picking.

Meet and greet - female (left) and male (right) SWD - on a raspberry fruit.

These traps are being monitored by Nicole Mattoon and Taylere Herrmann, NYS IPM Program field and summer technicians, respectively.

At this location, given the crop is ripe and ripening and the finding of SWD, it is time to begin to protect the crop with insecticides.
