The first Japanese beetles (classified as quarantine pests by the federal government) were caught in Ticino in 2017 and damage caused by them was recorded as early as 2020. Thanks to Agroscope's interactive Pollenn® map, the population of Ticino can now easily inform the responsible authorities about the presence of the dangerous pests. In this way, the further spread can be closely monitored.

Agroscope and Pollenn have worked closely together to develop new and innovative tools to easily register and manage field observations.
