Abstract

Metcalfa pruinosa Say 1830, an invasive species of North American origin, has expanded its area to almost the entire European continent, being also a polyphagous species. Over the years has been tried to combating the specie through biological control over the mass appearance of the populations of Metcalfa pruinosa, but also chemical combating. The monitoring and control of this species was carried out in the Botanical Garden of Craiova. Following the chemical control we performed, we found that the most effective treatment is Nurelle D 50/500 EC.
