The city of Digne-les-Bains will organize a third intervention for the regular treatment against the tiger of the plane tree. This operation will be organized on Wednesday July 28 from 21. 141 plane trees installed in the city center will be treated on this occasion. The vast majority of them are located on Place du Général de Gaulle, Cours des Arès, Place du Mitan, Boulevard Gassendi or in front of the Town Hall, Place Ernest Borrely, the bus station and the Tampinet car park.
It should be noted that this is a biological treatment which consists of low-pressure spraying of nematodes, natural enemies of the insect pest of the plane tree. This ecological method does not pose any health risk to the population, however, it is still preferable to close the windows when the treatment is underway.
