Protection methods


Several protection methods are recommended to control the development of noctuids on zucchini and squash in France:

  • install canvases insect-proof  at shelter openings;
  • install pheromone traps outside the shelter;
  • to use auxiliaries , these are the following microorganisms: Bacillus thuringiensis subspecies azawai and Bacillus thuringiensis subspecies kurstaki  ;
  • consider chemical protection * ( e-phy ), in particular if you use auxiliaries.

* Chemical control : The number of pesticides available for a given use is constantly changing, we advise you to always confirm your choice by consulting the e-phy site of the Ministry of Agriculture and Fisheries which is a catalog in line of plant protection products and their uses, fertilizers and growing media approved in France. This also applies to all biological products based on microorganisms or natural substances.
