Summary

The olive weevil becomes one of the major olive pests in Tadla-Azilal in Morocco. The chemical control is expensive and of low efficiency. Its application at night complicates the task for olive growers. An alternative non-chemical method has been developed using polyester fiber as a trap. It has a high efficiency, low cost and might be advised to organic olive farmers.
