The red palm weevil is a major pest of ornamental palms in southern Europe and the Mediterranean and in dategrowing countries of the Middle East. The larvae damage the vascular system of the trees, eventually causing their death. Detection of weevil activity is challenging because the pests are well-hidden, developing within the crown and stipe (stem) of the tree. We developed a sensor that identifies distinct sounds made by the larvae, facilitating the development of a human-and-machine learning system to detect infested palm trees. This system has a sensitivity of approximately 80% at an early stage of infestation, before symptoms become apparent. This prototype system could become the basis of a commercial tool for early detection of red palm-weevil infestation in date-palm plantations and ornamental palms.
