Green MM. They have two dark “mouth hooks” at the front. Photograph by Martin Hauser, California Department of Food and Agriculture. The eggs develop and hatch within the fruit in which they are laid (Walsh et al. Adult female spotted-wing drosophila, Drosophilia suzukii (Matsumura). These fruits are full of yeasts and have a high protein content.The larvae then develop and grow on a proteinic diet. Spotted wing drosophila, Drosophila suzukii Matsumura (Diptera: Drosophilidae), is an invasive pest of soft- and stone-fruit, which has become established throughout temperate regions of the world in the last decade. However, flies emerging late in the season overwinter and may live longer.

Spotted Wing Drosophila (SWD) Larvae. Efforts to manage D. suzukii have focused primarily on insecticides, but such controls may, at times, be unreliable, given that D. suzukii larvae are often ensconced within fruit. Drosophila suzukii performance metrics of the number of eggs, larvae, and emerged adults were expressed per gram of fruit to standardize the results and account for different masses of cultivars at different developmental stages. 0000011005 00000 n In the continental U.S., it was first detected in Santa Cruz County, California, on caneberry and strawberry plants (Bolda et al. 2006, Walsh et al. 0000059494 00000 n Suzukii Drosophila: a new threat feature for the European fruit and viticulture - report for the international conference in Trient, 2, December 2011. A female lays approximately one to three eggs per oviposition site. 0000013516 00000 n Microorganisms play a central role in the biology of vinegar flies such as Drosophila suzukii and Drosophila melanogaster: serving as a food source to both adults and larvae, and influencing a range of traits including nutrition, behavior, and development. Toda MJ. 2009). Pupae: The pupae are cylindrical, reddish brown with two small projections at the end. However, Drosophila suzukii is firmly established on the island of Hokkaido in Japan where winters average -4 to -12°C (Kimura 2004), suggesting the possibility of its establishment in cooler climates. Mature larvae may grow up to 6 mm in length (Kanzawa 1939, Walsh et al. Drosophila or pomace flies are small insects commonly found in association with over-ripened or rotten fruits and vegetables. The serrations are much darker than the rest of ovipositor (Kanzawa 1939, Walsh et al. Since then, it has rapidly spread to new areas including Florida, Louisiana, Michigan, North Carolina, Oregon, South Carolina, Utah, Washington and Wisconsin in the U.S., and British Columbia in Canada (Walsh et al.

Parasitoids from the families Braconidae and Cynipidae are potential biocontrol agents of Drosophila suzukii. 0000002521 00000 n Many of the larvae will exit right away; the majority will exit fruit within 1 to 15 minutes. 2010). Insecticide sprays effective against other Drosophila flies are also effective against Drosophila suzukii adults. Physiological responses to selection for desiccation resistance in, Bolda MP, Goodhue RE, Zalom FG. Within the United States, it has been established in Hawaii since 1980 (Kaneshiro 1983). Drosophila suzukii Matsumura (Diptera: Drosophilidae), a fruit fly from East Asia, is now a serious economic pest of soft fruits and berries across Europe, the Americas and North Africa. 0000045287 00000 n However, true fruit flies belong to the family Tephritidae. Simple funnel trap baited with vinegar to trap adult Drosophila. Drosophila suzukii has a wide host range, including: The following hard fruits may be attacked if the skin is already broken: Fruit infestation is initially manifested by scars on the fruit surface left by ovipositing females (stinging). Larval development occurs inside the fruit and develops through three instars before pupation. Larvae of Drosophila spp. The egg, larval and pupal stages last from 1–3, 3–13, and 4–5 days, respectively (Kanzawa 1939). Beers EH, Smith TJ, Walsh DB. 0000005639 00000 n b) Count larvae immediately—before they die and possibly sink to bottom of tray. The body is tapered anteriorly with elevated posterior spiracles. The SWD flies have brownish-yellow thorax, black stripes across the abdomen, and distinct red eyes. A number such as Beauveria bassiana, Isaria fumosorosea, Metarhiziumanisopliae and Lecanicillium lecanii ensure a death rate of more than 50% among fruit flies11,20. Abstract. Spotless males are also possible, but are rarely observed in the field and should be verified by a taxonomist for positive identification. The adult female of Drosophila melanogaster (our beloved model organism), lays her eggs on overripe or rotting fruits. Entomopathogenic nematodes have been proposed as biological agents for the control of Drosophila suzukii, an invasive pest of small-stone and soft-skinned fruits.Larvae of the fly are susceptible to Steinernema carpocapsae infection but the reaction of immune defenses of the host are unknown. 0000020597 00000 n Males have a distinguishing dark spot along the front edge of each wing.

Management practices for spotted-wing drosophila are similar to those used to manage common Drosophila flies. Adult females of Drosophila Suzukii damage the surface of the cherry during laying. The total life cycle may be completed within one to two weeks depending upon the climatic conditions (Kanzawa 1939). Drosophilaflies are sometimes called small fruit flies. Within Europe, this species is also widely distributed in France, Italy and Spain (European and Mediterranean Plant Protection Organization 2010). Photograph by Whitney Cranshaw, Colorado State University, Bugwood.org. Adults are able to withstand longer periods of cold conditions than larvae or pupae (Walsh et al. First instar larvae are approximately 0.07 mm in length. 2011). Larvae: The larvae are milky-white and cylindrical with black mouthparts. Figure 1. Spotted wing drosophila (Drosophila suzukii) larval sampling Spotted wing drosophila research and extension efforts are supported by the North Carolina Blueberry Council, the NC Strawberry Association, the Southern Region Small Fruit Consortium, and the Southern IPM Center. 1957. To determine the immune response, larvae were infected with S. carpocapsae and Xenorhabdus … This species is included in the EPPO A2 List as recommended to be included amongst the species in phytosanitary quarantine. 0000049415 00000 n Spotted wing drosophila (Drosophila suzukii) is an exotic plant pest.This insect pest is a serious threat to Australia’s cherry and berry fruit industries. There are approximately 1,500 known species in the genus Drosophila (Markow and O'Grady 2006). Pupation can occur either inside or on the exterior of fruit. RNA interference (RNAi) or double-stranded RNA (dsRNA)-mediated gene silencing is rapidly becoming a widely used functional genomics tool in insects and holds great potential for insect pest control. Small white larvae hatch from eggs within a few days and feed inside the fruit, causing it to soften and collapse around the feeding site.

Geographical distributions and host associations of larval parasitoids of frugivorous, Molina JJ, Harisson MD, Brewer JW. larvae. Monitor adult fly populations before fruit begin ripening and before flies begin laying eggs. However, true fruit flies belong to the family Tephritidae. A large number of Drosophila species are known from Australia and many Drosophila species have larvae that are commonly found in rotting fruit. Agriculture and Resource Economics Update. Internal organs of larvae are visible after it has consumed some fruit. (February 2010). Therefore, expert examination by a specialist is needed for positive identification and confirmation (Steck et al. 0000007900 00000 n 2009, Walsh et al.
