White Grubs

TPCP
Please let me know if you come across any sites with high infestations of white grubs. This could be either wattle, eucalypt or pine sites. We have a new PhD student (Birhan Addisie) who is looking at the potential use of EPNs (entomopathogenic nematodes) for the management of white grubs, and we would greatly appreciate any assistance in identifying sites for collection. read more
Recent Leptocybe Workshop at the ICFR
5 July, 2013
ICFR
The ICFR recently hosted a workshop to discuss industry-wide operational and research approaches to manage Leptocybe invasa, the Blue Gum Chalcid wasp in South Africa. Leptocybe invasa has become one of the most serious eucalypt pests in South Africa, infesting a range of commercially grown Eucalyptus species and hybrid clones. The recent release of the biological control agent Selitrichodes neseri which is being managed by staff at FABI at the University of Pretoria, is expected to effectively assist in the management of L. invasa, based on its performance under quarantine conditions. read more
Official scientific report of Myrtle rust in Africa
4 July, 2013
FABI / TPCP

This is the rust that also poses a potential threat to other members of the Myrtaceae such as Eucalyptus and Syzigium. Attached is the official scientific report that was published last week in IMA Fungus, the official journal of the International Mycological Association. This paper should be used for citation purposes in reports and articles, rather than our first report on treehealthnet. read more
