 [Objectives]  To improve control of Drosophila suzukii by providing information on the seasonal abundance of this pest and the damage it causes to fruit crops. [Methods]  The population dynamics of D. suzukii were investigated by trapping adults with a sweet lure (sugar + vinegar +alcohol) in a bayberry orchard in Shiping County from April to July in 2016. Fresh and fallen fruits were collected in orchards and kept in a laboratory to investigate the percentage of infested fruits. Soil samples were obtained from orchards to determine if there were pupae in soil. Regular removal of fallen fruit was evaluated as a means of reducing D. suzukii abundance in orchards. [Results]  D. suzukii occurred from April to mid-July in bayberry orchards and reached peak abundance at the end June when 100% of fruits were infested. Several Drosophila species could be found in infested fruits. D. suzukii can pupate in both fruit and soil. Timely removal of fallen fruit significantly reduced the number of D. suzukii in orchards. [Conclusion]  Drosophila suzukii, together with other Drosophila species, can infest bayberry fruits. Timely removal of fallen fruit can significantly reduce the abundance of D. suzukii in orchards.
