Sustained catch in Putnam County

A single SWD female was caught in traps checked on Monday, June 10, 2019. These traps are being monitored by Michael Principe, CCE Master Gardener Program in Putnam County for the Eastern NY Commercial Horticulture Program.

Because numbers are so low at this site, we're going to check again for another week or so to keep tabs on SWD population growth at this location.
