Colorado beetle campaign: volunteer observers in Cotentin (FR)

 

Colorado beetles, present in Normandy, threaten potato production in the Channel Islands.  Here is one of the three volunteer observers in the Cotentin peninsula explaining recently to a French Inspector and the EPPO Director General how they monitor weather data and the flight behaviour of caged beetles.  Along with data from two surveys each year this gives early warning when there is a high risk of spread to the islands.
