Situation of Bemisia tabaci in Ireland in 2009

The results of the 2009 survey for Bemisia tabaci (Homoptera: Aleyrodidae - EPPO A2 List) were sent by the NPPO of Ireland to the EPPO Secretariat. Inspections were carried out at points of entry, places of production as well as wholesale retail premises. In 2009, the pest was detected on 28 imported consignments (see EPPO reports on notifications of non-compliance). B. tabaci was detected in 7 Irish nurseries on Euphorbia pulcherrima. The infested plants had all been supplied by other EU member states. All outbreaks were eradicated in 2009.
The situation of Erwinia amylovora in Ireland can be described as follows: Absent, outbreaks are occasionally found but systematically submitted to eradication measures.
