First find in Washington County

A single female was found in a trap set on the edge of a blueberry planting in Washington County during the week ending July 10, 2018. None of the three other traps caught any SWD. Natasha Field and Laura McDermott, Eastern NY Commercial Horticulture Program, are monitoring SWD at this location.
