Wasps vs. Spotted Wing Drosophila
News Source: Organic Science Canada
“Natural enemies that kill spotted wing drosophila may help to slow their growth and, in turn, reduce pressure on crops.” – Dr. Juli Carrillo and research team
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.
