Spotted Wing Drosophila

(Drosophila Suzukii)

Drosophila Suzukii is the scourge of small fruits that arrived on our territory, initially infested primarily blueberries, raspberries and strawberries.
This fly has become a real emergency: it seems that to date no effective molecule has been found to fight it, and many studies and experiments are still in progress.
 

Originally from Southeast Asia, he appeared in the United States in 2008. Effect of globalization, in Italy, France and Spain its presence was reported for the first time in 2009 (Trentin and Spain): the plague of small fruits infests the fruit of a thin skin, cultivated and spontaneous plants. Today, it is present in Italy in 12 regions and in Europe in 13 countries.
