    • Phenology and spatial distribution of adult and larval spotted wing drosophila in small fruit, stone fruit, and wild hosts in New York 

      Loeb, Greg; Carroll, Julie (New York State IPM Program, 2012)
      Spotted wing drosophila (SWD) Drosophila suzukii, originally from Asia, is a new invasive fruit pest that became established in NY and surrounding states in 2011. Unlike other fruit flies that typically only infest overripe ...
    • Redefining IPM for Strawberry Production under the Emerging Threat of Anthracnose and Strawberry Sap Beetle 

      Turechek, William W.; English-Loeb, Greg (New York State IPM Program, 2002)
      A sampling survey of strawberry acreage in New York was conducted to determine the distribution of two pests of increasing concern to strawberry growers in New York: strawberry sap beetle, Stelidota geminata (Say), and ...
    • Small Fruit Commodity Survey – 2016 

      Carroll, Juliet (New York State Integrated Pest Management Program, 2016)
      A Small Fruit Commodity Cooperative Agricultural Pest Survey was conducted for exotic insects including Egyptian cottonworm (ECW), summer fruit tortrix moth (SFT), light brown apple moth (LBM), and silver Y moth (SYM). All ...
    • Spotted Wing Drosophila (SWD) Trap Network 

      Carroll, Juliet (New York State IPM Program, 2015)
      A New York State monitoring network for the invasive insect spotted wing Drosophila (SWD) will be set in June and monitored each year by Extension educators and faculty until first sustained trap catch is noted. Results ...
    • Spotted Wing Drosophila (SWD), Drosophila suzukii, infestation risk to tomatoes 

      Zuefle, Marion; Loeb, Greg (New York State IPM Program, 2014)
      Spotted Wing Drosophila (SWD),Drosophila suzukii, an invasive fruit fly originally from Asia, appeared in NY in 2011 and has become of major concern to small fruit growers. Unlike other fruit flies, it has a serrated ...
    • Spotted Wing Drosophila Trap Network 2013 

      Carroll, Juliet (New York State IPM Program, 2013)
      Spotted wing Drosophila (SWD) was first detected in New York in 2011 and, in 2012, was reported from across the state causing significant damage to berry crops. For 2013, a coordinated approach was taken in the collection ...
    • Spotted Wing Drosophila Working Group to Identify and Prioritize Research and Extension Needs 

      Carroll, Juliet (New York State Integrated Pest Management Program, 2018)
      Spotted wing drosophila (SWD) continues to be a serious challenge for fruit growers in the Northeast and elsewhere. To protect fruit from egg-laying adults, repeated applications of insecticides have become the norm, from ...
