Prevent the introduction and spread of tree pests and diseases

Prevent the introduction and spread of tree pests and diseases


Find out what you can do to prevent tree pests and diseases from getting established, or to prevent or slow their spread and the damage they do.

Biosecurity refers to a set of precautions that aim to prevent the introduction and spread of harmful organisms. These include non-native tree pests, such as insects, and disease-causing organisms, called pathogens, such as some bacteria and fungi.

Tree pests and diseases can be transported between or within countries via a number of pathways, including:

  • live plant and tree products, such as potted plants
  • timber and wood packaging materials (WPM), such as shipping crates and pallets – find out more if you’re an importer using WPM
  • dirty tools, kit, machinery and vehicles, such as chainsaws, boots and all-terrain vehicles
  • soil and organic material, such as leaf litter
  • natural methods, such as wind and water

There has been a significant increase in the number of non-native tree pests and diseases being introduced to the United Kingdom since the early 2000s. This demonstrates the need for us all to take action to provide our trees, woods and forests with greater protection. By implementing appropriate biosecurity measures, we can significantly reduce the risk of introducing and spreading tree pests and diseases.

This page will show you how to maximise good tree health through biosecurity.

What you can do


Tree pests and diseases can have a significant impact on our landscape, but there are some simple steps members of the public can take to help limit their spread:

  • drive and park your vehicle only on hard-standing surfaces such as tarmac where possible when visiting outdoor areas such as woodlands, parks or gardens
  • clean mud, organic material and water off your boots, bikes and buggies – and the dog – before you leave, because fungi, bacteria and insects can live in these materials
  • ‘Don’t risk it!’ – please don’t bring any plant or tree products back from trips abroad, because these might be carrying harmful non-native tree pests or pathogens
  • report any trees that you suspect are in ill-health to the Forestry Commission using Tree Alert

Industry professionals

People working in the arboriculture, forestry and landscaping industries are considered a particularly high-risk group for their potential to spread tree pests and diseases.

The Forestry Commission has therefore worked closely with the following organisations to develop industry-specific biosecurity guidance in an effort to reduce their members’ risk of introducing or spreading pests and diseases:

By following the three calls to action from our industry guidance (‘Think kit, think transport, think trees’) alongside the public biosecurity guidance above, industry professionals can significantly reduce the risk:

‘Think kit’:

  • make sure all equipment, including boots, clothing, ropes and saws, is free from soil and organic material before entering and leaving a site
  • regularly clean ropes as per the manufacturer’s guidance, or use dedicated ropes for particular sites
  • clean and disinfect chainsaws (pruning saws and other cutting tools as part of regular routine maintenance, and before moving to new sites)

‘Think transport’:

  • remove any build-up of soil and organic material on vehicles and machinery, including cabs, wheels and foot wells, before leaving each site
  • use proper off-site wash-down facilities regularly

‘Think trees, plants, and materials’:

  • develop relationships with nurseries you can trust so they can help you responsibly source plant and tree stock from pest- and disease-free areas
  • keep accurate, up-to-date records of all purchases and supplies to assist with tracing exercises in the event of an outbreak
  • regularly monitor plant and tree stock for signs of ill-health, and report any suspect symptoms to us using Tree Alert
  • if you’re responsible for importing or moving plants, check your plant passport and registration requirements with APHA before doing so
  • source landscaping materials only from pest- and disease-free areas
  • be aware of any restrictions in place, or phytosanitary (plant health) measures and treatments required when importing certain materials or their packaging
  • consider specifying British-grown plants to avoid being party to an accidental introduction of a pest or disease

When working on a site that is subject to a Statutory Plant Health Notice (see below), or where a pest or disease has been confirmed, you must follow any additional biosecurity guidance for that pest or disease in addition to the measures above.

If you must remove infected or infested material from such sites for safety reasons, you must ensure that:

  • it’s kept separate from other arisings
  • it’s not used for mulch or firewood
  • it’s disposed of at a licensed handling facility, or through deep burial or incineration on site
  • you obtain a movement licence if required

Land owners and managers

As a land owner or manager, it’s particularly important that you implement appropriate biosecurity measures to prevent the introduction and spread of tree pests and diseases. Not only can these organisms affect the economic value of your trees, they can also have a wider negative impact on other species and habitats.

By following the biosecurity guidance provided above for the public and industry professionals, you can significantly reduce the risk of tree pests and diseases spreading on to your land. If, however, a tree pest or disease is confirmed on the land you own or manage, there are some additional measures you need to follow:

Statutory Plant Health Notices (SPHNs)

If the tree pest or disease found on the land you own or manage is classified as notifiable, you may be issued with an SPHN. The Forestry Commission and other plant health authorities issue these notices requiring the owner or manager to take certain steps to eradicate or contain notifiable pests and diseases.

SPHNs requiring eradication may require measures to kill the infected or infested trees, such as by felling or ring barking. SPHNs ordering containment measures may allow the infected or infested trees to remain standing, but require any susceptible material to remain on site.

If you’re issued with an SPHN, you must follow any instructions provided within the document. If you have any questions about an SPHN you have been issued, contact the Forestry Commission.

Note that receipt of an SPHN doesn’t mean that you’re in any trouble. Nor does it imply that you have committed an offence, or are at fault for the pest or disease being present on your land. However, failure to comply with the requirements of an SPHN can result in enforcement action and prosecution.

Non-notifiable pests and diseases

You’re not required to take any action if the tree pest or disease found on your land is not notifiable. We do, however, recommend that you take the following measures to ensure people’s and animals’ safety, and to minimise any further spread of the pest or disease. You should:

  • continue to implement the biosecurity measures in the public and industry professionals sections above
  • make any visitors aware of the presence of pests and diseases on your land through information boards, posters at entry points, and/or by adding information and biosecurity guidance to your site’s website, if available
  • monitor the trees’ safety as the infection or infestation progresses, and prune or fell affected trees if they threaten to cause damage or injury
  • in low-density situations, such as in parks or gardens, slow the spread of pests and diseases by removing and disposing of (by burying, composting or, where permitted, burning) infected trees and their fallen leaves and branches

Biosecurity kit

Putting together a simple, portable biosecurity kit can help you implement simple measures every day to help limit the introduction and spread of tree pests and diseases. The following are cheap and easily obtained items to include in your kit:

  • bucket (big enough to fit your boot and a few inches of water)
  • boot pick
  • brush
  • disinfectant
  • hand sanitiser
  • water container (or a large re-used water bottle)
  • portable pressure washer (optional, but handy for cleaning bikes or other equipment that won’t fit in a bucket)


Propellar and Cleankill Sanitising Spray are effective against Phytophthora species and other plant pathogens. Note that ‘Cleankill Sanitising Spray’ should be distinguished from ‘Cleankill’, which is a commonly used animal health disinfectant. ‘Cleankill’ has not been tested for its effectiveness against plant pathogens such as Phytophthora species.

We make the following recommendations for using these disinfectants:

  • disinfectants are only effective when sprayed on to clean surfaces, so clear all soil and organic material from the surfaces being disinfected before spraying
  • use Cleankill Sanitising Spray rather than Propellar to disinfect work boots and outerwear, to avoid any damage to their fabric and glue
  • propellar should be used on metal tools to prevent rusting, but it must be stored in a flame-proof container when not in use because of its flammability

If using disinfectant, you should also include these additional items within your kit:

  • eye protection
  • protective gloves
  • flame-proof container


The number of introductions of tree pests and diseases has increased. It is therefore more important than ever that we all learn how we can help to minimise the risk of further introductions and spread through the effective application of biosecurity measures.

Our biosecurity e-learning package was developed with the Animal and Plant Health Agency, the Arboricultural Association and the British Association for Landscape Industries. It provides background information about biosecurity issues, and clear guidance on the most effective and appropriate biosecurity measures for different situations.

The package can be accessed via the Forestry Commission’s e-learning portal. Before you first use it, you’ll be asked to register and create an account. Once your account is verified you can enrol for the online courses.

The package is divided into five modules:

  • Module 1: Biosecurity awareness
  • Module 2: Biosecurity – dispersal pathways
  • Module 3: Biosecurity measures
  • Module 4: Biosecurity – personal controls
  • Module 5: Biosecurity – import and export requirements for wood packaging material

At the end of each module is a short test to establish your understanding of the subject. The pass mark for each test is 80 per cent, and there is an option to re-take the test if required.

If you have any queries about the e-learning package, contact the Forestry Commission.


‘Keep it Clean’

The Forestry Commission’s ‘Keep it Clean’ campaign is a simple, memorable call to action to everyone to incorporate biosecurity measures into their daily routine. You can support the campaign by downloading the media and tools and using them within your organisation any way you can.

You can also show your support on Twitter by using the Forestry Commission’s ‘Keep it Clean’ Twibbon

Predatory Mites: Get Rid of Spider Mites on Cannabis Organically

Predatory Mites are anthropods used for biological control of pest spider mites. These living warriors do not bite people and cause no damage to plants. Whether you’re growing indoors, outdoors or in a greenhouse, predatory mites are a great organic solution to spider mite infestations.

Table of Contents:

What are Spider Mites?

Tetranychus urticae females with egg

One of the more formidable pathogens a Cannabis shepherd must contend with is known as the “Spider Mite”. Spider Mites are arachnids barely visible to the naked eye that feed by extracting fluid from plant tissues. Many species are able to reproduce quickly, hatching in as little as 3 days, and becoming sexually mature in as little as 5 days.

Spider mites can feed on hundreds of different species of plants (including cannabis). They most commonly reside on the undersides of leaves, and can spin their silk webs over plant leaves and flowers – hence the name “Spider Mite”. Spider mites are known as one of the most frustrating cannabis pests to get rid of.

Spider Mites are Damaging to Plants

Plant leaves succumb to spider mite infestation quickly causing mass die off. Spider mites obtain their food by sucking chlorophyll from leaf undersides. Without hasty countermeasures or eradication, entire crops can be lost. Luckily there are many methods available for prevention and treatment if symptoms are diagnosed quickly.

While avoiding infestation is optimal, spider mites prey on a vast array of plants all horticulturalists will eventually come in contact with including many yard and garden plants like juniper, corn, peppers, tomatoes, potatoes, beans, eggplants, carrots, strawberries, cucumbers and cannabis

Common Ways to Get Rid of Spider Mites

While acaricides like pyrethrum are effective, it is best to avoid the risk of plant tissue damage and residual toxicity in sinsemilla crops.

Organic sprays containing Neem oil, pepper spray and insecticidal soaps are safer options though proper application is stressed since mite populations congregate on the underside of cannabis leaves. AzaMax and Spinosad are popular OMRI listed solutions.

Modifying environmental factors can control mite populations but may improve the conditions for other pathogens i.e. increased humidity and botrytis. Controlled CO2 enrichment has been touted as “Generally dramatically decreased oxygen and increased carbon dioxide concentrations at elevated temperatures can lead to mortality(of spider mites) at all developmental stages.” [ read more ]

A contained “CO2 blast” can kill grown spider mites, though won’t kill their eggs – reapplication is necessary within a few days. This debated method is praised by some, while many cannabis growers have found CO2 level modification for spider mite eradication utterly useless. Use extreme caution when handling and releasing CO2 – a concentration above 5000 ppm is known as dangerous to humans.

Using Predatory Mites to Kill Spider Mites on Plants

One sustainable organic remedy that has only recently become commercially available to cultivators is deploying predatory mites to hunt and kill your mites for you. Soldier bugs like Praying Mantis, Ladybugs, and Green Lacewing have been available for many years. However, they have not proven to be effective as they are much larger and do not prey specifically on mites.

Predatory mites are comparable in size to their prey but move at much higher speeds and feed on many spider mites in short periods of time. P.Persimilis will feed so quickly they starve since their diet consists of Spider Mites alone. A.Swirskii has a varied diet including mites, pollen, and even mold. Furthermore, it will also predate harmful insects such as Thrips and Whiteflies if they are introduced to the garden space.

A blend of species is often offered by suppliers providing strength in diversity. Multiple applications are still recommended to provide insurance that stowaway eggs don’t seed future infestation.

Predatory Mite Benefits

There are clear advantages to plants by using predatory mites to kill spider mites:

  • Predatory mites eat spider mites.
  • Predatory mites eat spider mite eggs. Compare this to many spray and CO2 methods that attack solely the hatched mite, doing nothing for the next generation. Predator mites devour the both the mite itself along with it’s nutritious unhatched eggs.
  • Predatory mites move quickly and thoroughly through plants, possessing a wolfish hunger.
  • Easy to use – no need to worry about spraying every single leaf’s underside, simply release your predator mite army and sit back.
  • 100% safe and organic – stay away from chemical application that can result in residual pesticides (a growing problem in the cannabis market).
  • Predatory mites are inexpensive and delivered fast!

Phytoseiulus persimilis species of predatory mite

How to Apply Predatory Mites on Cannabis:

Mites can be released at anytime outdoors but it is preferable to release when lights are off if in an indoor grow space. Lightly spray the entire surface of the canopy with water and sprinkle the contents of the bottle which will stick to the leaf surface. Depending on species, mites will be effective between 1-12 per square foot so orders typically come in 500-5000 per.

In general, a light spider mite infestation should be inoculated with a blend of predatory mites species at a rate of 2-4 per square meter. 5-10 per square meter will be effective for a heavy infestation. If preferred, sprinkle the mites into an envelope and secure it between branches to keep the carrier medium off of the plants if flowering has already been initiated. Though it may not be needed a second application is recommended after two weeks to eradicate potential stowaway eggs seeding a future infestations.

Buy Predatory Mites For Sale Online

Predatory Mites can be procured online through or directly through supplier websites like and . The order should arrive in under 24 hours and the mites must be released within 18 hours of receipt. They will be stored in camera film sized containers in a vermiculite or corn grit medium, or in slow release bags.

Controlling Thrips – How To Get Rid Of Thrips

Thysanoptera, or thrips, are little slender insects that have fringed wings and feed on other insects by puncturing them and sucking out their insides. However, some of them also feed inside the buds and leaves of a plant. This causes distorted parts to the plant or black specks, which is actually the feces from the thrips. Stippled leaves or blossoms that die before opening are also a sign that you may have thrips.

Not All Thrips on Flowers Are Bad

If you are wondering how to kill thrips, insecticides work. The problem with killing them is that you will accidentally kill things that are beneficial to your plants. This includes some species of thrips. Therefore, you want to form a plan of thrip control because controlling thrips is much better for your plants that getting rid of thrips altogether.

There are other pests that can cause damage similar to that of thrips. This might be mites or lace bugs. Make sure that pest thrips are the thrips you have before you take any action to start thrip control so you know what you are doing will kill the actual problem. Some thrips are beneficial because they kill other pests to your plants, so you want some thrips on flowers. However, the bad ones need to be controlled and there are some specific ways to go about controlling thrips.

How to Kill Thrips

When you are performing thrip control, realize that controlling thrips is not always the easiest thing to do. You could use pesticides, but you don’t want to rid the plant of the beneficial thrips. You should use control strategies that include the least toxic insecticides along with making sure you use good cultural practices, such as providing consistent watering and cleaning up dead or diseased plant material.

When controlling thrips, you can prune and get rid of any injured areas on the plant. Regular pruning helps get rid of thrips. Thrips on flowers can be eliminated as soon as you see signs of damage by using a mild insecticide like insecticidal soap or neem oil, or by pruning the flowers. You never want to shear your plants because the new growth caused by shearing will attract even more thrips than you had before shearing the plant.

So remember, controlling thrips is better than thinking about getting rid of thrips because when you get rid of thrips, you are will also be eliminating beneficial bugs to your plants as well. You do not want to do that. Protect the beneficial bugs, and make sure you take care of eliminating thrips that are not beneficial by taking appropriate and safe measures.
