Handley Mentioned in Press Herald Gardening Column

David Handley, a University of Maine Cooperative Extension vegetable and small fruit specialist, was mentioned in the Portland Press Herald’s latest Maine Gardener column, “Pests bound to bug Maine this year.” Handley and other UMaine Cooperative Extension crop specialists at Highmoor Farm in Monmouth, Maine, are working to improve traps for the spotted-wing drosophila, the column states. Previously, traps were being used to determine when the pests will appear to schedule spraying. Now the goal is to create traps that will kill the flies that would damage crops.
