Introduction

 


BIODELEAR is an ambitious project which foresees the development of an integrated pest management strategy (IPMS) for the sustainable management for the control of Med fly (Ceratitis capitata) in the absence of insecticides using the mass trapping technique with a novel attractant which is no toxic to the people and to the environment, for the application in intensively cultivated Mediterranean areas.

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.
