USDA: azúcares no nutritivas para combatir Drosophila Suzukii
Drosophila suzukii (Matsumura) (Diptera: Drosophilidae), commonly referred to as spotted-wing drosophila (SWD), is a problematic pest for small fruits.
This species has an advantageous serrated female ovipositor (a tube-like organism used for laying eggs) which allows SWD to lay eggs into ripening fruit.
Rotational insecticide applications are predominately used to control SWD populations, although there is a desire for human-safe, environmentally friendly management tools.
