Spotted Wing Drosophila

(Drosophila Suzukii)

Drosophila Suzukii is an insect afflicting small fruits, mainly blueberries, raspberries, strawberries and grapes. Although experimental studies are still in progress, the fight against this flying pest has so far been unsuccessful, as no effective bio treatment has been found. 

Originally from Southeast Asia, this pest first appeared in the United States in 2008 and, as a consequence of globalisation, from 2008 it spread to Italy, France and Spain.

Today, it is present in 12 regions of Italy and 13 countries of Europe.
