Protected zone quarantine pests

Feuerbrand Schutzzone

This category includes PDHOs which are already common in Switzerland, but which do not yet occur in certain areas where they could, however, cause major damage.

Protected zone quarantine organisms have quarantine organism status only in the protected zones defined for them, but not in the rest of Switzerland. At present, only fireblight (Erwinia amylovora) is designated a protected zone quarantine organism in Switzerland, and it is only in the Valais that this harmful organism has quarantine status.
