Search for practical solutions to entomological problems in viticulture, horticulture, and orchards
Our aim is to provide wine-growers, vegetable producers, fruit growers and berry producers with feasible and ecological solutions for the control of harmful insects and mites by studying their biology and harmfulness, by establishing economic thresholds and by developing new control strategies.
In viticulture, we study the vectors of flavescence dorée and bois noir disease, e.g. the two cicadas Scaphoideus titanus and Hyalesthes obsoletus, with the aim of proposing reasonable and sustainable control strategies. In addition, we contribute to the improvement of control methods against grape moths and we monitor the development of eriophyid mites in young plantations.
In horticulture, our research concentrates on bugs, whiteflies, aphids and mites, with the aim of optimising sampling techniques and developing cultural, biological and chemical control strategies.
In orchards and in berry cultures, we monitor the situation of other pests, such as codling moth, summer fruit tortrix moth, red spider mite and two spotted spider mite.
