Workshop on Diabrotica virgifera, Hódmezövásárhely (HU),
A Workshop on Diabrotica virgifera (EPPO A2 quarantine pest) took place in Hódmezövásárhely (HU), in 1996-03-19. Participants from Yugoslavia, Croatia and Hungary agreed that the monitoring of D. virgifera should continue in 1996 in the countries concerned by using the same method. In 1996, sex-pheromone traps (produced by the Research Institute for Plant Protection in Budapest, HU) and cucurbitacin traps will be used in parallel. Trapping will start at the beginning of July in Yugoslavia, Croatia, Hungary and probably also in Romania and will go on for 3 months. In addition to trapping, visual observations will be made in maize fields.
