Biological Insects Will Protect Our Forests. A biological solution has been found against insects that do more damage to forests than fires. Beneficial insects reproduced in a laboratory environment will protect forests. For this reason, half a million biological insects produced in 2013 were released into the forests.
Insects occupy an important place among other creatures that damage forests. In the animal kingdom, insects make up the largest group. Insects have a very high reproductive energy. Insects have the power to multiply in a short time under suitable climatic conditions and destroy an entire forest.
The General Directorate of Forestry, affiliated to the Ministry of Forestry and Water Affairs, applies biological, biotechnical, mechanical and chemical control methods against harmful insects in our forests. On the one hand, biological diversity is protected, on the other hand, beneficial insects are protected against harmful insects and reproduced in the laboratory environment.
According to the information given by the Ministry of Forestry and Water Affairs, the damage done by insects to forests is at least five times greater than the damage done by fires. Since the damage done by insects is so great, efforts to combat forest pests are mostly focused on combating harmful insects.
Again, according to the data of the ministry, work was carried out on 2013 thousand 341 hectares of land in 631 for an effective fight against forest pests. 53 beneficial insects produced in 534 laboratories were released into the forests. A total of 500 million 1984 predatory insects have been produced in laboratories since 11, when biological studies began. In addition, within the framework of biological control in 421, 2013 partridges were released into forests and 5 ants were transplanted. 700 thousand 130 artificial bird nests were hung in the forests.
In biological control studies, adults of beneficial insects found in forests are collected and transported to laboratories. Mature individuals obtained in laboratories are taken to areas with harmful insects in the forests and left on the bottom of the trees or on the trees. These beneficial insects produced in laboratories not only destroy harmful insects, but also continue their generation and become an effective element of biological control in our forests.
