Fake emails with sender AMW

We prefer talking about Trichogramma, their use and other nice things. But for current occasion here is a contribution to the topic of abuse of email addresses.

Unfortunately it happened again that our email addresses ending in ... com were used as sender for spam. These emails are fake and are not from us. These emails are sent via foreign servers with fake senders. Unfortunately, it is technically too easy to do such a thing!

We thank all those who have received these emails for information about this abuse. We pass on all information to our IT representative.

If you are not sure or we are not in a recent correspondence, then you do not open suspiciously looking mails or their attachments. If you are the victim of such an email, we are very sorry, but we can not do anything about it. We have already exhausted all the technical measures available to us. Please ignore obvious spam or phishing emails and delete them. Please do not open any attachments of these emails. The procedure of the `Spamer` is very annoying and it costs us a lot of time and nerves to deal with these emails.

End of GBol baiting season

The second and last baiting season of the GBOL Project comes to an end. Our employee Tore Kursch-Metz coordinates in the last two years the shipment and preparation of the Trichogramma baiting devices. Partners from all over the country were involved. They have replaced the live traps weekly all over the season from April till End of October. When the traps reached our company a sample based on the progeny of one female was prepared. Both, female and progeny was conserved separately in ethanol and stored in a fridge.

For molecular species identification such samples were send to the Stuttgart State Museum of Natural History, which used the samples to build up a database for all Trichogramma species naturally occurring in Germany.  Moreover we try to rear every strain in a small amount for further tests and the potential application as a biocontrol agent. In the last two years 2300 Samples were prepared and more than 150 living samples were established. For further information please visit: German Barcode of Life www.bolgermany.de/
