Olive fruit fly: managing an ancient pest in modern times.

  author={Kent M Daane and Marshall W. Johnson},
  journal={Annual review of entomology},
Olive fruit fly, Bactrocera oleae (Rossi) (Diptera: Tephritidae), is the major pest of commercial olives worldwide. Various aspects of its biology, ecology, management, and impact on olive production are highlighted. With the discovery of insecticidal resistance in some populations frequently treated with organophosphates, old and new control options are being investigated. The potential of biological control is examined. Surveys suggest that a small group of braconids in the Opiinae subfamily… CONTINUE READING
