The Japanese beetle, Popillia japonica, is one of the worst invasive pests of North America. Costs to control the pest in the US exceed $450 million per year. The beetle was detected near Milano in 2014 and is now starting to spread in Europe. Together with 12 other partners, Pessl Instruments joined an IPM-Popillia project to address the problem and develop a solution for this pressing problem.
