Biocontrol of Oak processionary moth

General

Infestations with this pest can cause oak defoliation. Older larvae have urticating hairs, which can cause serious skin and eye irritation and respiratory problems in humans and some animals. Our product Tp-Nema® controls caterpillars of the Oak processionary moth.

Tp-Nema® contains the entomopathogenic nematode Steinernema feltiae.
The nematodes enter the caterpillars of the oak processionary moth and release their symbiotic bacteria. The bacteria reduce and kill the larvae within 5 – 10 days. The nematodes reproduce inside the cadavers and a new generation emerges and infects new hosts.
