Life-Biodelear project participated in the European Pesticide Residues Workshop 2016, which was carried out on 24-27 May 2016 in Limassol, Cyprus. The title of the presentation was «Addressing Med fly with an innovative and environment friendly attractant through an Integrated Pest Management Strategy».

Up to now 300 citrus fruit samples have been sampled according to Directive 91972/2003, and analysed with a multiresidue analytical method capable of analysing 334 pesticides and 18 plant growth regulators. Those preparatory samplings depicted the pesticide residues fingerprint of the experimental areas prior to the application of mass trapping with Biodelear.

Life-Biodelear project participated in the 9th International Conference on Integrated Fruit Production, which was carried out on 4-8 September 2016 in Thessaloniki, Greece. The title of the presentation was «Mass trapping of Ceratitis capitata using the new attractant BIODELEAR».

According to the so far results, the LIFE program strongly suggest that mass trapping with the new attractant BIODELEAR can effectively control the population of Ceratitis capitata, lower citrus fruit infestation and preserve biodiversity of arthropods.
