The aim of the project was to measure the effect of certain natural repellents that can be used on different types of exclusion nets to reduce egglaying by new or resurgent pests such as the oriental fruit moth and the brown marmorated stink bug (Pentatomid), observed for the first time in Québec in 2007 and 2014, respectively.
