Spread of the invasive pest Drosophila suzukii is monitored with help of hobby growers

The fruit fly Drosophila suzukii that is a major pest on soft summer fruits such as blueberries and raspberries is spreading in Sweden. But how far has it spread? In a citizen science project, Paul

Biodiversity provides higher crop yields

A high diversity of different pollinators and other beneficial organisms in an agricultural landscape leads to a greater harvest. This is shown in an extensive international study where researchers

Biological pesticides are tested in nurseries

Today, high demands are made on the forest industry for production to be environmentally friendly. At the same time, many chemical pesticides are being phased out. Elin Persson is now investigating

Assessments of potential toxin production of biological control agents are unnecessary harsh in the EU

The introduction of microbial control agents into the European market for practical use in pest and disease control is a very slow and costly process. This is partly due to unnecessarily strict

Chemical communication between plants, microbes and insects

Insect pests use chemical signals (semiochemicals) to find food, hosts and mates. Accordingly, chemical communication can be used as a target for pest control. The application of semiochemicals
