Oil fly trap

The olive fruit fly also called olive fly (bactrocera oleae) is a dangerous insect present in all Italian olive groves.
Female specimens lay their eggs by puncturing the olive skin. Here the larvae find an ideal place to grow by feeding on the flesh of the fruit.
The sting of the olive fly on the olive causes devastating effects on the crops including the destruction of the fruit pulp, the fall of the infested fruit and the substantial alteration of the quality of the olives.
