There's one olive which shows clear signs of invasion

    I never heared about olive worms or any sickness in olive tree’s, probably cos there aren’t many here and the one who have one or two in their garden are just kept for their beauty. Is there something you can do to prevent this ? And what do you do with the ones who have worms ?

      No I hadn’t either till now. Olive trees can be sprayed in August against the fly. Unless there’s 10% or less infestation of olives across the grove, the oil they make is acidic and of no value.
