Monitoring Drosophila suzukii Matsumura in Oregon, USA sweet cherry orchards


Abstract: Drosophila suzukii rapidly became a significant cherry pest in the western United States after it was observed damaging cherries in 2009 in California. It has caused significant damage to ripening cherries in all major USA cherry production districts leading to increased management costs and reduced profits. Cherry producers require good tools that provide information on the need to treat with insecticides. This project presents information on recent studies on attractants and traps for D. suzukii in sweet cherries.
