Sustained catch in several counties

Sustained catch (two weeks in a row catching SWD) was reported on June 26 and 27, 2017, in several counties: Albany, Rennselaer, Saratoga, Schuyler and Washington. Reports have come in from Annie Mills, field technician with Laura McDermott and the Eastern NY Commercial Horticulture Program and from Taylere Herrmann and Nicole Mattoon with me in the NYS IPM Program.

Specific findings:

Albany County - 10% ripe summer raspberries at the site and 52 SWD caught in 4 of 4 traps.

Rensselaer County - 31 SWD caught at this site in 3 of 4 traps.

Saratoga County - blackberries are still unripe at this site, but nearby sweet cherries are coloring up. 2 female SWD caught.
