Timely control strategies, customized sampling on plant organs and greater entomological awareness, inherent in the approach of the organic grower, allow qualitative and quantitative results in organic olive growing, and in any Italian olive growing area. The smaller expenses of defense against pests than conventional olive growing induce an increasing number of producers to convert to the organic rules. The authors illustrate the permitted and recommended methods for organic farming regime for the control of major insect pests of the olive tree in the Mediterranean, with particular address to the oilve fly, Bactrocera oleae, and the olive moth, Prays oleae.
