Abstract

Rhynchophorus ferrugineus Oliv, known as the red palm weevil (RPW), has recently quickly spread in the Mediterranean Basin and United States infesting and destroying an increasing number of species of Phoenix canariensis palms. Of the various techniques suggested for treating the palms, high power microwave applications could be an attractive and eco-compatible solution.
