The City Council made several treatments in the pine processionary the municipality (05/09/2008)

The City of Alhama de Murcia through the Department of Parks and Gardens has carried out a mass treatment against processionary local pine.

To do this, we used high-capacity trap aimed at the mass capture of males of the pine processionary by synthetic sex pheromone of females.

Synthetic pheromones are impregnated on broadcasters that are released slowly.

These diffusers are placed in traps to attract males, leaving them trapped.

The places of the municipality where you are performing these treatments are: In public schools Our Lady of the Rosary, Sierra Espuña, Antonio Machado, Gines Diaz-San Cristobal, Prince of Spain, Ricardo Codorniu, Gloria Fuertes in the Nursery, in the garden of the Americas and in the garden of Los Pinos.

The advantages of placing these traps are many and that pheromones are completely harmless to humans and domestic animals used to detect early infection of pests; confirm where the infection starts, respect the biological balance in the ecosystems do not incorporate toxic waste to food or the environment, is a system that creates resistance in pests; help identify specific pests reporting the severity of the infection in order to take appropriate control measures.

Having established the presence of procesionaria, there will be spraying the specimens affected by insecticide fogging totally organic.

This technique is well suited to combat the dangerous rashes and allergies in small recreational areas, parks, gardens and access areas.

The timetable for implementing these treatments is to be the following:

• In the school:

- Placement of the 1st pheromone: July 18

- Placement of the 2nd pheromone: September 1

- Placement of the pheromone 3rd: October 10
