A sustainable approach in the control of the olive fruit fly, Bactrocera oleae (Rossi)


Abstract: Innovative materials obtained with Cu(II) species and with aqueous-phase olive mill wastewaters deposited onto bentonite-like montmorillonite clays, have proved to be quite efficient to reduce Bactrocera oleae (Rossi) infestation. These products are easily prepared, cost effective, environmentally friendly, stable to rainwater leaching, toxicologically safe and led to a remarkable diminution in the use of bioactive species for on-field applications.
