This chapter reviews the current control methods against red palm weevil (RPW, Rhynchophorus ferrugineus) and palm borer moth (PBM, Paysandisia archon). Scientific documents covering different features of their bio-ecology and control (legal control, cultural control, biological control, chemical control, and methods using semiochemicals) together with research carried out within the framework of the EU-funded Palm Protect project may provide the basis for future development of more sustainable methods to protect our palms and continue enjoying our agricultural, natural, and cultural palm heritage.

Abstract

This chapter reviews the current control methods against red palm weevil (RPW, Rhynchophorus ferrugineus) and palm borer moth (PBM, Paysandisia archon). Scientific documents covering different features of their bio-ecology and control (legal control, cultural control, biological control, chemical control, and methods using semiochemicals) together with research carried out within the framework of the EU-funded Palm Protect project may provide the basis for future development of more sustainable methods to protect our palms and continue enjoying our agricultural, natural, and cultural palm heritage.
