Release of biological control for the Eucalyptus bronze bug


On 11th of October Cleruchoides noackae, a biological control agent for the Eucalyptus bronze bug, Thaumastocoris peregrinus, was released simultaneously in Limpopo, around the Tzaneen area, and in Kwazulu-Natal Midlands, around Pietermaritzburg and Richmond.

This is an important and historic milestone for Forestry in South Africa and is a tribute to the exceptional University-Forest Industry-Government partnership facilitated through the Tree Protection Co-operative Programme (TPCP) at the Forestry and Agricultural Biotechnology Institute (FABI).
