Welcome to BIOCOMES

The EU emphasizes the role of integrated pest management as an important approach to reduce dependency on pesticides use. Before pesticides are used, biological control measures, together with physical and other non-chemical methods, should have first preference (Directive 2009/128/EC).
The EU is stimulating the development of biological control products by financing this BIOCOMES project.

On this website you will find information about:

  • The pests and diseases for which BIOCOMES is developing biological control solutions
  • Why it is important to offer biological alternatives for control of these pests and diseases
  • Which biological control products are being developed
