Abstract There has been a resurgence of the curculionid A. piri on pear in Belgium and the Netherlands in the 1990s. Notes are given on its biological cycle, injuriousness, phenology, parasitoids and methods of control. Its population development is favoured by integrated control programmes which has led to a decrease in the number of pest control treatments against Psylla pyri [Cacopsylla pyri] and a build-up of populations of secondary pests. The curculionid does not respond to coloured traps, and the only way of detecting the presence of adults is by beating the branches. Chemical control against the adults can be carried out in June, when the adults are first active, and/or in autumn, when activity is resumed after summer diapause. The last period is preferred in integrated control programmes.
