The basic aim of LIFE eGymer is to utilize non-chemical control by developing and implementing smart traps, mass and larval trapping and MD techniques, to remotely monitor and effectively control more than one life stage of the gypsy moth, and, most importantly, to allow a much wider application time window compared to chemical control methods (against larvae: May/June, against moths: July/August).
The major objective of LIFE eGymer is to demonstrate the effectiveness and viability of an innovative trapping and monitoring system for the gypsy moth, an insect that causes huge environmental problems both in natural habitats and in semi-urban and recreational areas of cities. The proposed system combines state-of-the-art solutions used to control the gypsy moth but also integrates modern technologies for continuous monitoring of the species’ population in different EU countries and climate zones, where traditional applications are either impracticable and/or financially non-viable. Moreover, it aims to reduce the quantities of plastic wasted within the manufacturing process by using recyclable materials as well as to reduce their overall cost.
The LIFE eGymer project is co-funded by the LIFE Programme of the European Union under contract number LIFE20 ENV/GR/000801
