Details on glasshouse quarantine pests in Croatia

The NPPO of Croatia has recently provided the EPPO Secretariat with the following information on glasshouse quarantine pests:

  • Frankliniella occidentalis (EPPO A2 quarantine pest) was introduced in 1989, and since then has spread to all glasshouses in Croatia, causing serious damage to vegetable and ornamental crops.
  • Liriomyza trifolii (EPPO A2 quarantine pest) and Liriomyza bryoniae (EU Annexes) occur in Croatia (The EPPO Secretariat had previously no data on the occurrence of L. bryoniae).
  • Tomato spotted wilt tospovirus (EPPO A2 quarantine pest) occurs with a restricted distribution.
  • The Croatian NPPO states that Bemisia tabaci, Liriomyza huidobrensis and Spodoptera littoralis (all EPPO A2 quarantine pests) do not occur in Croatia.
