New Spotted Wing Drosophila
Publications for Kentucky
This summer, spotted wing drosophila (SWD) activity was confirmed statewide in Kentucky. SWD is a serious threat to small fruit production, the adults lay eggs under the skin of otherwise sound fruit. This can result in small maggots in the fruit at harvest or just after harvest. UK Entomology developed two new fact sheets to provide extension personnel and growers with information they can use to combat this new invasive species.
