Trapping Weevils

      Trapping the weevils and destroying them is another method by which pest population can be brought down. Another use of trapping is to detect the presence of the pest in the field  and also to assess the population.

The aggregation pheromone lure of RPW is used with pieces of palm stem as food with a solution of insecticide in a bucket to orient the weevils to the traps (Saudi Trap).
