Competition from D. melanogaster for these resources can potentially reduce spotted-wing drosophila populations that would otherwise overwinter, and follow-up studies are needed in the field to demonstrate this. The vinegar fly Drosophila suzukii (Matsumura) (Diptera Drosophilidae), spotted wing drosophila, is a highly polyphagous inva-sive pest endemic to South East Asia, which has recently invaded western countries. 2011). 2007, Roubos et al. Predator gut content DNA analyses reveal that 43% of collected earwigs, 16% of damsel bugs, 21% of web-building spiders, and 8% of hunting spiders had fed on spotted-wing drosophila from organic or untreated cherry, blackberry, raspberry fields (Wolf et al. D. suzukii belongs to the subgenus Sophophora, which is divided into several groups of species. 2018). Also cut back on moisture as much as you can. The aphid parasitoid, Aphidius colemani Viereck (Hympenoptera: Braconidae), may be important in controlling secondary aphid pests in fields. More studies are needed to determine whether viruses can be delivered and spread among spotted-wing drosophila in the field, and which viruses to target in different locations. This Open Access article contains public sector information licensed under the Open Government Licence v2.0 (, A Review of the Biology, Ecology, and Management of Plum Curculio (Coleoptera: Curculionidae), What Do They Know and What Do They DO? A number of brands that contained spinosad as the active ingredient were highly effective, including formulations of Bonide Captain Jack’s Deadbug Brew that are available via Arbico Organics. This fly is a particular threat to raspberries and blackberries and can totally devastate a late season crop. 2016, Rendon et al. While most fungal strains kill over several days, a noncommercial strain from Spain killed 50% of infected adults in 7 h, and lowered production of the next generation of spotted-wing drosophila by 85% (Yousef et al. These fruit flies are about 1/10-inch-long and have bright red eyes and black horizontal stripes on their abdomens. The small fruit flies are familiar insects to many people, sometimes found abundantly indoors, where they feed on yeasts associated with overripe fruit or the sediment of beverage containers. 1). 2019). 2015). Field trials with bacterial pathogens are needed before recommendation. It is a fruit-killing machine. Thank you so much! The SWD can cost growers a fortune and totally destroy late-season crops like blueberries or fall raspberries. You can freeze the fruit, or you can bake it by putting it in clear plastic bags in the sun for at least 48 hours. Wang, X. G., B. N. Hogg, E. Hougardy, A. H. Nance, and K. M. Daane. 2017). Biological control is an approach that is expected to reduce long-term management costs of spotted-wing drosophila, and help growers to have more economically and environmentally sustainable farms (Haye et al. D. suzukii ovopositor Mass trapping is a possible non-chemical control method: in this It thrives on a living host but grows very slowly on media, and will unlikely be developed as a biopesticide. Unfortunately, wSuz does not cause the desired population reductions with ‘cytoplasmic incompatibility’, where an infected male mates with an uninfected female and no offspring are produced. Organic farms may be more amenable to integrating biological control since natural enemies are more evenly distributed throughout organic blueberry fields than conventional fields (Whitehouse et al. Unlike most other Drosophila species D. suzukii oviposits and feeds on healthy fruits . 2017), gene drives (Buchman et al. 2019). On hot days, they will migrate to the cool, moist canopies inside the fruit trees. Chris Maier of the Connecticut Agricultural Experiment Station compiled this list. You will need to purchase Entrust®instead. Unlike most other Drosophila species D. suzukii oviposits and feeds on healthy fruits . Helga then returned to Cornell to obtain a PhD, studying one of the model systems of plant defense. Carabid beetles, crickets, green lacewing larvae, earwigs, and Orius have been found among infested fruits, and they also fed on spotted-wing drosophila in the lab, which suggest that they could be predators in those systems (Arno et al. 2018). English; Svenska ; Latest : Borgeby FaltDagar - February 7, 2019 at 10:24 am; Partnership with Hallongarden - February 6, 2019 at 2:23 pm; New SWD publication - February 6, 2019 at 2:16 pm; Swedish Radio interview - February 6, 2019 at 2:09 pm; Field … Fruits like cherries will show visible dents around the larvae. 2012). 2018a; Giorgini et al. Spotted wing drosophila pupating on the surface of a cherry. However, the adult males differ from other native Drosophila males in that they possess a dark spot along the front edge of the wing near the wingtip. In the summer season, we spray OMRI-certified organic agents that meet our organic certification standards. Not only does excessive insecticide harm biological control agents that directly suppress D. suzukii, it can harm other beneficial arthropods that suppress previously unimportant pests such as scales and aphids. The larvae live for 5-7 days before pupating for 4-15 days either inside or outside of the fruit. The invasive fruit fly spotted wing drosophila (Drosophila suzukii) originated in Asia but has invaded regions around the globe.A new review of existing research published in May in the Journal of Insect Science details the speciesâ high degree of phenotypic plasticityâthe ability to shift traits in response to environmental influences. In this project we are focusing on finding natural enemies (parasitoids) of the pest to introduce into Europe. Augmentative releases with predators and parasitoids are still under development, may be suitable for non-crop or protected areas, and future work might consider the compatibility of parasitoid releases in areas with high natural predation. Published by Oxford University Press on behalf of Entomological Society of America 2019. Cloonan, K. R., J. Abraham, S. Angeli, Z. Syed, and C. Rodriguez-Saona. Grapes are not a preferred host, but the SWD will infest them if they have damage from hail or birds or cracks in the fruit. Recent research has explored autoinoculation devices, where spotted-wing drosophila adults are attracted to a trap by its food/odor, enter it, are dusted with spores, and leave carrying spores (Cossentine et al. The predatory mite has not been observed to feed on exposed spotted-wing drosophila (Cuthbertson et al. Effective control of D. suzukii during harvest requires weekly applications of low-residual, broad-spectrum insecticides that are unavailable for organic farming. Chemical control. 2018), and behavior-modifying compounds developed as organic products (Tait et al. All three parasitoids readily attack and develop in spotted-wing drosophila (Supp Appendix [online only]) and prefer to attack young first instar spotted-wing drosophila larvae (Wang et al. They do better in more moderate climates. Carrau, T., N. Hiebert, A. Vilcinskas, and K. Z. Lee. Begun, A. Vo, C. C. Smith, P. Saelao, A. O. Shaver, J. Jaenike, and M. Turelli. Currently, the rove beetle Dalotia coriaria Kraatz (Coleoptera: Staphylinidae) (also called Atheta coriaria), Orius bugs, and the predatory mite Strateolaelaps scimitus (Wormersley) (Acari: Laelapidae) (also called Hypoaspis miles) are available for purchase. Releases of Wolbachia-infected spotted-wing drosophila need to be carefully planned to only include males since a mating between infected males and infected females will produce offspring. They are highly annoying but don’t do much harm. 2016; Biondi et al. Entomopathogens have the potential to be applied on the foliage and fruit like other pesticides, applied to the soil to target pupae and wandering larvae, or used in a lure-and-infect system such as an autoinoculation trap. If you identify the dreaded pest on your property, it is time to take action. Pachycrepoideus vindemmiae seems to have a wider temperature range than T. drosophilae, which may explain the current distribution of these species in North America (Wang et al. © Ask the Experts, LLC. Spotted-wing drosophila larvae are more likely to migrate out of the fruit to pupate when it is crowded (C. S. B. Da Silva, V. M. Walton et al., unpublished data). Fleury, F., P. Gibert, N. Ris, and R. Allemand. Fix any broken irrigation lines and wait until the ground and mulch is dry before irrigating. Management Recommendations for the Spotted Wing Drosophila in Organic Berry Crops, University of Georgia Extension. It was also effective for raspberries, blackberries, and loganberries. 2018). 2017). However, the role of beneficial organisms in management of Drosophila suzukii has not been fully ascertained (Walsh et al. Scale outbreaks on stems of blueberry bushes sprayed for spotted-wing drosophila control, photo by B. Nikolouli, K., H. Colinet, D. Renault, T. Enriquez, L. Mouton, P. Gibert, F. Sassu, C. Cáceres, C. Stauffer, R. Pereira, et al. I’m not sure if it would keep the larvae from emerging, but there is… Read more ». Several major universities had long focused on organic control methods for the SWD. Biondi, A., L. Zappalà, J. D. Stark, and N. Desneux. USDA ARS, Horticultural Crops Research Unit. Becher, P. G., R. E. Jensen, M. E. Natsopoulou, V. Verschut, and H. H. De Fine Licht. On hanging fruit, larvae will often drop and pupate in the soil rather than remain in the fruit (Woltz and Lee 2017). As each natural enemy is covered, we address the impact observed in the field (i.e., predation rate), efficacy of commercial products available, and other options that may be available in the future. It infests ripening cherries throughout the state and ripening raspberry, blackberry, blueberry, and strawberry crops, especially in coastal areas. If you don’t, you could possibly end up with even worse infestations than if you did not use the netting. 2b). This sustained suppression can improve area-wide management by reducing spotted-wing drosophila populations that attack various susceptible crops throughout the seasons. The first detection in Spain of the Drosophila Suzukii fly occurred in the province of Tarragona during the year 2008. For example, the detection of one fly in a conventional berry or cherry grove in Michigan can send the growers into immediate action if their fruit are ripening or are ripe. Thus, growers may be interested in augmenting these rove beetles by rearing them on dog/fish food and placing ‘breeding boxes’ in crop areas. A pupal parasitoid will oviposit in and subsequently emerge from spotted-wing drosophila pupa (Fig. The only natural enemy that did have an effect on the development of the Drosophila population was the parasitic wasp. 2017). Chen, C.-X. Drosophila suzukii has a rapid life cycle and the larvae develop well beneath the fruit surface. 2017). Hamby, K. A., D. E. Bellamy, J. C. Chiu, J. C. Lee, V. M. Walton, N. G. Wiman, R. M. York, and A. Biondi. Harvesting every two days or even every day (especially with raspberries) with help to minimize the levels of infestation in your plants. 2017, Hübner et al. The authors claim no conflicts of interest. Markings consist of bands at the ends of abdominal segments. Walsh, D. B., M. P. Bolda, R. E. Goodhue, A. J. Dreves, J. Lee, D. J. Bruck, V. M. Walton, S. D. O’Neal, and F. G. Zalom. Another advantage of using a trap in this manner is that you can wait to treat your crops until you are sure you have the SWD on your property. Few larval-pupal parasitoids can overcome the defense response of spotted-wing drosophila, in which the parasitoid egg/larva gets encased (encapsulated) with melanized cells. In Japan, parasitism by G. brasiliensis was as high as 76% (Girod et al. Yes, you can definitely alternate between the two. These fruit flies are about 1/10-inch-long and have bright red eyes and black horizontal stripes on their abdomens. In addition to pathogenic bacteria, endosymbiotic bacteria such as Wolbachia can affect spotted-wing drosophila reproduction positively or negatively. Most of them do not control the SWD as effectively as spinosad. Promising results were seen for control of ground-dwelling pests in nursery systems (Bennison et al. However, by using an integrated pest management (IPM) approach, you can control this pest using organic techniques. Some growers avoid fall raspberries entirely and only focus on a summer crop. 2011, Van Timmeren and Isaacs 2013), but is acutely toxic to beneficial insects under greenhouse conditions (Biondi et al. Asiatic pest, Drosophila suzukii. During this year the fly also enters the United Stateswhere it has expanded causing large losses. Lee, J. C., A. J. Dreves, A. M. Cave, S. Kawai, R. Isaacs, J. C. Miller, S. Van Timmeren, and D. J. Bruck. Tait, G., C. Kaiser, M. V. Rossi Stacconi, D. T. Dalton, G. Anfora, and V. M. Walton. Navigate through the online version by selecting the chapter of interest from the drop-down list at top left. Cattel, J., R. Kaur, P. Gibert, J. Martinez, A. Fraimout, F. Jiggins, T. Andrieux, S.

Miller, et al. 29-01-2019 1 Control biológico, cultural y químico de Drosophila suzukii Dr. Luis Devotto Moreno Centro Tecnológico de Control Biológico INIA Quilamapu “Esta plaga no se controlará exclusivamente con insecticidas químicos” CONCLUSIÓN: The SWD is difficult to control under any conditions, and even more so for organic growers. However, Colorado State University recommends against pyrethrins, because of their short residual activity, and say that they have not been effective against the… Read more », Thank you so much for this current and applicable information. Yet, during late season, spotted-wing drosophila can use fallen and damaged fruit when fresh fruit is not available (Stemberger 2016). You can find it here. They live for 20-30 days. Insecticides and rates used in small plot trials for control of Drosophila suzukii in 2012 and in program comparisons at commercial blueberry farms in 2011 and 2012. The fly Drosophila suzukii (Matsumura, 1931) is a plague of Asian origin with high virulence and rapid expansion capacity.. 3). However, it turns out that the larvae can escape from the ground, so you should not practice this technique anymore. The majority of organically approved insecticides are selective for pests with lower risk to beneficial insects, but this is not always the case (Biondi et al. In the past, experts recommended burying the fruit. The SWD reproduce rapidly and can produce at least 15 generations a year. Another way you can check your fruit is to look for the “stings” – the tiny holes that the females created when they laid their eggs in the fruit. She holds a BS in agriculture from Cornell University, and an MS from the University of Massachusetts Amherst. 2018), cultural methods (Rendon and Walton 2019), exclusion (Leach et al. 2). Drosophila suzukii females possess a This compound is available in a number of formulations made by Ortho, including Ortho Bug B Gon Systemic Insect Killer Concentrate and Ortho Flower Fruit & Vegetable Insect Killer Concentrate. Control of SWD. Short-day strawberries that bear in June are less likely to be affected by SWD than are day neutral strawberries that mature later in the season. A. Second, fungal sprays in the field will be less concentrated and subject to quicker degradation. The USDA OREI research team found that the use of netting “can be consistently effective” at reducing the infestation of the SWD in small fruits like raspberries, blackberries, and blueberries. They can break apart when handled. Since the flies like cool and moist places, they are drawn to the inside of canopies. 2017). Biological control of the Spotted wing Drosophila - Drosophila suzukii Drosophila suzukii Matsumura (Diptera: Drosophilidae), a fruit fly from East Asia, is now a serious economic pest of soft fruits and berries across Europe, the Americas and North Africa. The fruit will typically fall to the ground by the time the flies start pupating. This will have the added benefit of improving the spray coverage. Cuthbertson, A. G., L. F. Blackburn, and N. Audsley. Control biológico, cultural y químico de Drosophila suzukii 1. 2016). If they are infested, juice will ooze out. Growers have increasingly observed secondary pest outbreaks in blueberry, an… D. suzukii, originally from southeast Asia, is becoming a ma 2016b). Current information about bacterial pathogens for spotted-wing drosophila control is from laboratory trials, and natural infestation reports are lacking. 2014). 2011, Bruck et al. Emiljanowicz, L. M., G. D. Ryan, A. Langille, and J. Newman. 2018). If the fruit has dropped to the ground, third instar larvae will ‘wander’ and pupate in the soil (Ballman et al. Son, V. M. Walton, B. N. Hogg, and K. M. Daane. 89: 605-619. Given the costs of applying entomopathogens, future work should develop lure-and-infect strategies where pests are drawn in and less product is needed to achieve suppression. A competitor that is not harmful can be used to suppress an economically damaging pest.
