First catch Essex County

5 female SWD were caught on July 3, 2017 in traps set within a planting of ripe and ripening summer raspberries. These traps are being monitored by Amy Ivy, extension educator, Eastern NY Commercial Horticulture Program (ENYCHP), assisted by Anne Mills, field technician with ENYCHP.

If your berries are ripe and SWD is being caught in your area, it is time to begin management tactics to protect the crop.
