|Abstract:||The olive moth, Prays oleae (Bernard) (Lepidoptera: Yponomeutidae), is one of the most destructive pests of olive groves in the Mediterranean basin. In recent years, the interest in evaluating the economic importance of P. oleae has been increasing, being loss assessment essential to the development of integrated pest management programs (IPM). Reliable economic thresholds for the pest are associated to any IPM practice, since enables the growers to reduce the input of pesticides and even target their use, when necessary. The purpose of this study was to establish economic thresholds against the fruit generation of P. oleae (Bern.) in Trás-os-Montes region (north-eastern Portugal), where the olive moth is a key pest of olive (Bento et al., 1997; Bento, 1999).|
