Olive fruit fly remains the key pest in organic olive groves. Growers need quick and efficient answers because alternative methods to sprays (such as mass trapping or biological control) have not yet given satis-factory results. Preliminary laboratory trials were car-ried out with several active ingredients in various dosages. Efficacy was then assessed at 24 hour and 48 hour intervals after application. The article presents
the encouraging results of the trials.
