Thank you, Mark. Might you suggest a rotation that you feel would be work?

So actually Jim this one is pretty tough in the organic space which I assume you are referring to. Entrust (spinosad) continues to be a strong performer, so that would be a clear partner to rotate with. Haven't had too much success with oils, so that's about it.  
So you know, we are pursuing non chemical solutions to SWD really hard this autumn, and there is some hope on some of it. We will discuss a lot of this at our entomology meeting to be held here at the office 1432 Freedom Blvd, Watsonville on Sept 13. If you are interested in SWD in caneberries, I don't think you'd want to miss this event. The agenda is posted on our county ce website.

Thank you Mark for posting this. I am currently researching the development of pyrethroid resistance in Drosophila and would very much like to know more. Is there any chance you could send though the methods and results of this?

Pontus, this was done on a spray table type of apparatus with the mixed material misted over the top of the flies. Controls were sprayed with water only.  
If you email me, I'll send you the contact info of my colleague.
