UK: Fruiting plant species as potential dead-end hosts of Drosophila suzukii

AHDB has reviewed the literature on potential dead-end hosts of spotted wing drosophila (SWD). These are plants which produce soft skinned berries which are attractive to adult female SWD for egg laying, but are not conducive to egg hatch or larval development. Therefore they offer a potential way of diverting adults away from fruit crops and reducing or slowing population development of the pest.
