The project focussed on the optimization of monitoring strategies and pest management practices. In particular, the project aimed to optimize monitoring methods using attractant traps, to map the incidence for pine wood nematodes and possible vectors, to evaluate phenology and biology of relevant vectors and their pine wood nematodes relationship and to develop molecular identification tests for Monochamus spp. 

Participating research institutions included 7 research organisations from 5 countries; in four of these countries, the vectors were known to be present, in one country the PWN was known to be present and in one country no vector nor the nematode was known to be established.
