Postharvest management of New Zealand flower thrips (Thrips obscuratus) on apricots using ethyl formate or pyrethrum-based treatments
The proliferation of date palm pests and the severity of infestation vary according to the pest species, age of the tree and the dominating environmental conditions.
The following pests are classified as key pests because of their wide presence and the severe economic damage they can cause to the date palms and fruits:

An integrated pest management (IPM) system, or an integrated crop management (ICM) system can never be a prescriptive, ‘off the shelf’ package. A grower must look at all the options available to him or her and make an informed decision as to which measures to take. Because each farmer’s situation is different, the types of IPM measures they implement may vary between regions and often even from farm to farm.
