Abstract or Summary
  • Blueberry production in Oregon is highly reliant upon the ecosystem services of native pollinators, which provide as much as a quarter of the total pollination services received by Blueberry growers. However, the health of these pollinator populations may be affected in yet unforeseen ways as growers adopt new pest management regimes to combat a new invasive pest, spotted wing Drosophila (Drosophila susukii). In order to fully understand what is at stake with the usage of new regimes, this paper attempts to put monetary values to the services currently provided by native pollinators. The benefits of these services were analyzed from the perspective of both producers and consumers of Oregon blueberries through the use of the welfare measures of producer and consumer surplus. Welfare measures were derived for two separate scenarios, one of which holds Oregon blueberry prices constant while the other has Oregon blueberry prices fluctuate with supply. Using these methods, the calculated total welfare from native pollinator services ranged from $9 to a high of $41 million.
