    Uittreksel

    The Asian fruit fly ('spotted wing drosophila', Drosophila suzukii MATSUMURA, 1931) has been detected for the first time in Belgium in 2011. This species of Asian origin was first reported in Nort America in 2008 and in Europe in 2009. D. suzukii has become a notorious pest in North America, causing severe losses in fruit production. In Europe, only a few reports of considerable crop damage from D. suzukii can be found. Here we discuss the arrival of D. suzukii in Belgium and give recommendations for its identification and pest management.
