Organic Science Canada: Wasps vs. Spotted Wing Drosophila

Juli Carrillo

“Natural enemies that kill spotted wing drosophila may help to slow their growth and, in turn, reduce pressure on crops.”

Dr. Juli Carrillo, CSFS Associate, has a research write-up on pages 25 and 26 of this Organic Science Canada digital issue (link below). The write-up goes into detail about sustainable management of spotted wing drosophila – these are invasive pests which hinder fruit harvesting. A PhD student in her lab, Warren Wong, took the magazine’s cover photo.
