FDTD simulation and experimental investigation of controlled microwave irradiation of red palm weevils

This paper presents the study made to assess the possibility of using microwave energy for irradiation of red palm weevils (Rhynchophorus ferrungineus), which is threatening palm trees in the region. The study is carried out both theoretically and experimentally. In the experimental part isolated weevils, at both larvae and adult stages, were exposed to… CONTINUE READING
