Diabrotica virgifera Le Conte has been present in Poland since 2005. The range of its distribution increased in 2006 and 2007. D. virgifera is known from areas of nine voivodeships in Southern and partially Central Poland. Current control strategy is based on containment measures to limit the spread of the pest from regions where it has occurred. This strategy includes the application of specific phytosanitary measures in defined parts of the country.
