Spotted Wing Drosophila
Spotted wing drosophila (SWD) is another invasive fruit pest that has been found in NJ.

Fruits such as caneberries, blueberries, and grapes are at highest risk and in New Jersey we have found infested blueberries and now caneberries. We are currently trying to identify the risk for peaches and critical periods for grapes.
