Protect your harvest from many pests, including Spotted Wing Dsosophila (SWD), Drosophila suzukii, a new invasive pest which can cause extensive damage to many fruit crops. Its presence has been confirmed in most states. Unlike native types of drosophila which deposit their eggs in fully ripe fruit, this one deposits eggs in fruit before fruit is ripe. By the time the fruit is ripe, the larvae can be very well developed.
