The U of I Extension service held a public workshop this past Monday for fruit growers, and one of the topics was how to control a small, non-native fruit fly which can cause heavy damage.  According to the Extension Service,  the Spotted-Wing Fruit Fly, is native to east Asia and was first detected in the United States in 2008.
