The Minnesota Department of Agriculture confirms spotted wing drosophila, an invasive pest of Asian origin, was found in Hennepin County this month. The pest feeds on healthy, ripening fruits such as raspberries, blackberries, blueberries, strawberries, grapes, plums and cherries. Anyone who finds small, white maggots in what was healthy fruit is asked to call the state agriculture department.
