Special Seminar: Recent Research Developments on Spotted Wing Drosophila (SWD) Insecticide Resistance in the Monterey Bay Area

Apr 11, 2024

Nationally recognized and long time California strawberry entomologist Frank Zalom will join Christine Tabuloc and myself this coming Friday April 19 at my office in Watsonville to discuss recent developments in insecticide resistance in our populations of spotted wing drosophila (SWD).  It's no secret to anybody that these flies have been tougher to control as our insecticides lose efficacy because of resistance; this seminar will give some insight as to how and why this is happening with some thoughts at the end by these entomology leaders on what steps to take next.

Meeting set to start at 9:30 am and continue until noon.  It's a fairly specialized topic, but all are welcome to attend.
