Fruit growing increasingly in conflict with new plagues from distant regions

Fruit growing increasingly in conflict with new plagues from distant regions

For the first time, a specimen of the dangerous Japanese beetle has been seen and caught in the vicinity of the Alps.

The brown marmorated stink bug, which is already a major pest in southern Europe, now also occurs in the Netherlands and Belgium and is a major threat to fruit cultivation. Recently, there have been reports of yet another plague in Germany, reported the professional journal Fruit & Vegetables and the German Juliues Kühn Institut. The Japanese beetle now represents an additional danger. The adult beetle will feed on leaves and fruits of agricultural and horticultural crops, among other things. Examples are apples, cherries, various types of berries and grapes. The chlorophyll is eaten away between the veins, which causes damage.

Protection against the Japanese beetle

With fewer and fewer crop protection chemicals, it is predictable that the use of insect nets will come into the picture more and more often. As we already know for the cherry fly and the Suzuki fruit fly. FruitSecurity Holland has various types of insect netting in its assortment. We are happy to inform you about the possibilities!
