Trogoderma granarium no longer occurs in Austria

The NPPO of Austria recently informed the EPPO Secretariat of the current situation of Trogoderma granarium (Coleoptera: Dermestidae - EPPO A2 quarantine pest) on its territory. Old records mentioned the presence of the insect with a limited distribution, only in stores. However, in 1996 an official monitoring programme was carried out at storage companies in all parts of Austria, and T. granarium was not found. Since that time, the pest has not been found. The Austrian NPPO officially declares that T. granarium does not occur in Austria.
The situation of T. granarium in Austria can be described as follows: Absent, found in the past but since 1996 no longer found.
