A new fact sheet covering cultural, biological and chemical control of spotted wing drosophila in organic crops has been developed by Michigan State University.
“Integrated Strategies for Management of Spotted Wing Drosophila in Organic Small Fruit Production” highlights multiple ways organic producers of various farm sizes can integrate nonchemical control practices into their farming. It also includes guidance on monitoring for adult flies and for larvae in fruit, and shows the label restrictions for Entrust SC, the primary organic insecticide used to control this pest, for each of the susceptible crops. The fact sheet also describes new approaches to controlling this pest that are in development at MSU.
