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.
