Demonstration project: "Exclusion netting to managing Spotted Wing Drosophila in fruit crops":
The invasive Spotted Wing Drosophila Drosophila suzukii Matsumura, 1931 has become an enormous threat for European fruit cultivation and viticulture. Due to the variety of host plants, the short generation cycle and the high reproduction cycle, the insecticide treatment is problematic. Further information to the biology, distribution and identification of Spotted Wing Drosophila: Knowledge Portal Drosophila. An alternative, technical possibility of control is the netting of affected cultures.
