Harmful Pests

Welcome to the Nordic-Baltic database on organisms harmful to plants and plant products. This site has been a part of a Nordic-Baltic Phytosanitary Project financed by the Council of Nordic Ministers.

Find pests

Most datasheets were delivered by Jorma Rautapää and Göran Kroeker – both former heads of The Plant Protection Services of Finland and Sweden, respectively. The Danish Agricultural Agency has contributed with an editorial group.

The IT platform is provided by The Ministry of Environment and Food of Denmark, and The Danish Agricultural Agency will deliver web-master and further editorial work to develop and extend the site in collaboration with colleagues from the Nordic and Baltic countries. The database is prepared to be extended with data sheets on invasive plants.

Most photos used for illustrations were kindly provided by EPPO.

Quarantine Pests Online do not have access to updated information on distribution of the pests, and therefore we recommend to download  the EPPO “Plant Quarantine Data Retrieval System” called PQR from the EPPO Homepage(free of charge).
