In simplified landscapes, organic farmers might be able to achieve significant gains in biological control services by planting floral strips to promote habitat for natural enemies (Jonsson et al. 2015). In contrast, diversifying floral resources on farms embedded in complex landscapes might have little impact on biological control services, as these landscapes already provide an abundant source of natural enemies (Jonsson et al. 2015). Thus, organic farmers need to consider their surrounding landscape when deciding whether to implement strategies to diversify their farming systems.

The West Indian sugarcane weevil, the banana weevil, and the American palm weevil (Giblin-Davis et al. 1996). In oil palm plantations in Central and South America, the palm weevil (Rhynchophorus palmarum) is a vector of the lethal red ring nematode. Today, the principal control method is a pheromone-based mass trapping, using one trap per acre (Oehlschlager et al. 2002). The key biological factors appear to be the relatively long life and slow reproductive rate of the tropical weevils and the fact that the aggregation pheromones attract both sexes.
