Over the past two weeks, we have organized demonstration events at our test locations in the provinces of Antwerp (BE), Limburg (BE), Noord-Brabant (NL) and Sittard-Geleen (NL).
Our first results indicate that both tits and parasitic wasps and flies may play an important role in mitigating nuisance caused by the oak processionary caterpillar.
Attend one of our demonstration events at the end of September and learn more about the progress, objectives and first results of the project. We will also visit some of our field locations.
In the coming weeks, we will be installing no fewer than 81 information boards at our test locations throughout Flanders and the Netherlands to inform passers-by about test setups and our LIFE project.
Male tits are inspecting our new LIFE nest boxes. The first results are promising!
Looking for suitable trial locations in Sittard-Geleen and a short introduction to the 3 ecological techniques.
Because we value sustainability, this LIFE project will use nesting boxes manufactured from wood with a PEFC certificate.
Every year, in all participating provinces, there will be demonstration moments when we will showcase the effectiveness of our trials at locations with and without natural enemies.
