Spotted Wing Drosophila (SWD) Is a new pest that is targeting not only large produce farms, but also the backyard gardener that has the corner of their yard full of berries, and vegetables. (SWD) attacks ripening fruit and vegetables by laying its eggs inside the fruit allowing the larva to develop by eating the ripe fruit. This can be identified on the fruit by accelerated rotting, and soft spots in the fruit. We welcome any questions and or finding that you have. Here is a link for you to follow to the OSU extension for more information http://swd.hort.oregonstate.edu/. Happy Gardening!
