In Poland we started in 2014 with our first field experiments to test potential biocontrol agents against Gypsy moth.
The gypsy moth Lymantria dispar is one of the most important pest insects of forests and orchards. It feeds on hundreds of tree and shrub species but prefers oak, lime, poplar and birch.

These experiments are part of the BIOCOMES project. An EU project that aims to develop 11 biocontrol products and 2 production technologies for the control of different pests and diseases.
