In most African and tropical countries, oil palm is one of the most economically important crops. There are constraints in its production and cultivation, among which are insect infestations, of which both adults and larvae of the oil palm leaf miner Coelaenomenodera lameensis Berti and Mariau formerly called C. minuta are the most serious and disastrous pests in West and Central Africa. Because of the great value and high economic importance of oil palm, several control measures are being taken to ensure high and quality yield during harvesting. The following control measures are being used; cultural, phytosanitary monitoring, chemical, biological, host plant resistance and integrated pest management. Chemical control is the most widely and commonly used control measure in plantations. Biological and host plant resistance have not been investigated and exploited much. These need more attention for healthy life, environmental safety and sustainable agriculture.
