Control of Dacus oleae, a major pest of olives

, : Control of Dacus oleae, a major pest of olives. Insect Science and its Application 8.1: 1-9

In this review, the control strategies being developed and in current use against the tephritid Dacus oleae, a major pest of olives, are described. They include biological control, trapping methods, sterile insect release, chemical insecticides, growth regulators and integrated control. Present problems and the implications of the control regimes for the agroecosystem are presented.
