Abstract

This publication refers to a meeting of experts which was held under the auspices of the Commission of the European Communities which considered the importance of the use of biological agents and biotechnologies in the context of integrated control, for the appropriate defence of olive trees against attacks by main pests. The validity of these methods emerges clearly from the work presented by the participants which is reported in this publication together with conclusions and recommendations formulated by the experts. They evaluate the role and importance of entomophagous insects and of entomopathogenic microorganisms, the use of sexual pheromones and of attractive simple or activated traps. All these methods also respond to the desire to reduce the frequency of application of chemical insecticide products which may lead to damage to man and cause pollution of the environment.
