Education on an invasive insect threatening fruit production in Oklahoma

Spotted wing drosophila is an invasive species that was detected in Tulsa County, OK. This insect can cause major economic losses in many different fruit crops. Our goal is to provide educational programming to update Oklahoma stakeholders on the detection and management of spotted wing drosophila. This workshop will include an update of summer 2014 research and hands on activities to learn how to monitor and manage SWD.  This event is free of charge and will include a monitoring kit for extension educators and growers.
