As fruit ripen they become susceptible to spotted wing drosophila (SWD) infestation. Right now that includes strawberries, and very soon cherries and blueberries. Followed not long after by peaches and nectarines. We are catching SWD in traps! For the latest SWD management information, see the SWD sidebar link or click here. Here are direct links to insecticide recommendations for small fruit and stone fruit. Good luck!
