Pest Risk Analysis - Batocera rufomaculata
Batocera rufomaculata is considered a pest with low phytosanitary risk for the Netherlands for the following reasons: - The pest can probably only survive in protected cultivation; - Incidental introductions (from e.g. China) may occur, but establishment and significant economic damage is very unlikely. - The endangered area is limited to glasshouse nurseries that grow Ficus spp. with a stem diameter of about 8 cm or more and the total endangered area is probably less than 10 ha. The phytosanitary risk for southern EU-countries will be larger as the pest can probably establish outdoors in those countries and cause damage to fig plantations.
