The Influence of Time of Day and Insecticide Application on the Abundance of Spotted Winged Drosophila, Drosophila Suzukii, in Michigan
MetadataShow full item record
The arrival of Spotted Winged Drosophila (SWD), Drosophila Suzukii (Matsumura) has caused extensive economic damages to ripe, small, soft-skinned fruit. The most common method for conventional and organic growers to protect fruit from SWD infestation is insecticide application. Since there is a zero-tolerance policy for fruit contaminated with SWD larvae, it is important to provide information to growers on ways to control SWD.
