Trogoderma granarium not present in the Province of Madrid (ES)

A survey has been carried out in the Province of Madrid (EU) to investigate if Trogoderma granarium (EPPO A2 quarantine pest) is present. Pheromone traps with different compounds were placed in silos, farms and fields in order to attract males of the storage pest. The only beetles caught in the survey were Trogoderma inclusum. The authors assume, therefore, that T. granarium is not present in the province of Madrid.
