To demonstrate the viability of the combination of several systems currently used to control processionary and tree lappet pest to be applied in different urban or recreational areas, where the air or massive fumigation is not possible. Moreover, it aims to improve current traps systems to increase significantly their effectiveness, reduce cost and to be adapted to each selected demonstrative urban pine areas.


The results of LIFE PISA have brought a solution to the pine processionary control mainly in Europe and other Mediterranean. The project has been aligned with the priorities of the National and EU Directives which are: 1) The reduction of environmental impacts. 2) Avoid the use of pesticides in urban places against pine processionary and other damage insects. 3) Reduce injuries over persons and animals. 4) Preserve forest from damage pests.

The project has been co-funded by the PLAN DE ACTUACIÓN IVACE during 2017. This programme has been supported by the Regional Ministry of Sustainable Economy, Productive Sectors, Trade and Employment of the Valencian regional government through the Valencian Institute of Business Competitivity (IVACE).
