Current research projects

Insect Services takes part in four research projects which are government-financed. In the field of plant protection, we are involved in projects aimed at developing new monitoring and control methods against different psyllid species and against the spotted wing drosophila, Drosophila suzukii. In the field of Biocides we are engaged in the development of a novel biological trap against ticks. Insect Services is an affiliate of Infravec2, a EU-funded international and interdisciplinary research infrastructure network to support vector research.
