Building a Spotted-Wing Drosophila Exclosure to Raise Fresh Berries

This educational film was produced by Jim Jasinski at Ohio State University Extension in cooperation with Jay Cooper, a grower in Medina County, OH. This film shows how one grower built a barrier made of insect proof netting to keep an invasive pest, the spotted-wing Drosophila (SWD), from attacking and infesting his raspberry crop. The exclosure structure is roughly 16' x 100' in size. Over the course of the film, Jay talks about the tips and tricks for designing and constructing this barrier. The fim is broken into five part: Part 1 (0:18) Why build the enclosure; Part 2 (2:06) Refining the enclosure; Part 3 (7:03) Construction and materials; Part 4 (9:11) Considerations inside the enclosure; Part 5 (13:12) Final thoughts.

Director Statement

I've been doing various small film projects for the past 10 years. Each year I try to get just a little bit better setting up the shot, directing the action, and editing what ever clips we manage to take!
