Abstract:  Drosophila suzukii is an invasive pest of cultivated fruit crops in Europe, Asia, and the Americas. However, more information is needed to understand the extent of D. suzukii utilization of wild fruit and specialty crops as suitable hosts, such as aronia (Aronia melanocarpa), for which risk assessment has not yet been established. Both laboratory bioassays and field monitoring were conducted to assess the susceptibly of aronia to D. suzukii. No-choice bioassays were conducted on…

Varietal and Developmental Susceptibility of Tart Cherry (Rosales: Rosaceae) to Drosophila suzukii (Diptera: Drosophilidae)

It is shown that tart cherries are largely not susceptible to D. suzukii when unripe and become susceptible as soon as the fruits change color, suggesting that fruits should be protected asSoon as they begin to ripen and D.suzkii populations begin to rise.



Susceptibility of cold hardy grapes to Drosophila suzukii (Diptera: Drosophilidae)

Grape susceptibility of cold hardy varieties based on hybrids of V. labrusca, V. riparia and V. vinifera are suggested to be resistant to D. suzukii if intact and highly susceptible if damaged.

The Wide Potential Trophic Niche of the Asiatic Fruit Fly Drosophila suzukii: The Key of Its Invasion Success in Temperate Europe?

It is suggested that the extreme polyphagy of the fly and the very large reservoir of hosts producing fruits all year round ensure temporal continuity in resource availability and contribute to the persistence and the exceptional invasion success of D. suzukii.

Characterization and manipulation of fruit susceptibility to Drosophila suzukii

Improved knowledge of factors affecting fruit susceptibility is needed for developing thresholds and risk prediction models for IPM and practices used to improve fruit quality were examined in laboratory no-choice cages for potential reduction of oviposition.

Drosophila suzukii (Diptera: Drosophilidae) and Its Potential Impact to Wine Grapes During Harvest in Two Cool Climate Wine Grape Production Regions

The relative host utilization of different wine grape cultivars grown in Northern Italy and Oregon is described to demonstrate that incised berries are more favorable for D. suzukii oviposition and as a nutrient substrate.

Non-crop plants used as hosts by Drosophila suzukii in Europe

The widespread availability and abundance of non-crop hosts and the lack of efficient native parasitoids suggest the need for an area-wide control approach to manage D. suzukii.

Evaluation of Monitoring Traps for Drosophila suzukii (Diptera: Drosophilidae) in North America

Although fly catches among traps varied per site, overall, the Haviland trap caught the most D. suzukii, followed by the red, Van Steenwyk, and clear trap, and future trap improvements should incorporate more entry points and focus on selective baits to improve efficiency and selectivity.

Distribution and activity of Drosophila suzukii in cultivated raspberry and surrounding vegetation

It is suggested that wild ‘Himalaya’ blackberry (HB) Rubus armeniacus Focke or other non‐crop plants as refugia and possibly exploit adjacent field margins before colonizing cultivated fruiting crops may contribute to elevated D. suzukii populations and pest pressure.

Invasion biology of spotted wing Drosophila (Drosophila suzukii): a global perspective and future priorities

It is concluded that particularly fruitful areas of research should include fundamental studies of its overwintering, host-use, and dispersal capabilities; as well as applied studies of alternative, cost-effective management techniques to complement insecticide use within the integrated pest management framework.

Earlier activity of Drosophila suzukii in high woodland landscapes but relative abundance is unaffected

This study suggests woodland landscapes affect early season crop risk and the high numbers of D. suzukii in the woods have implications for understanding overwintering.
