- The decay rate of six insecticides (azinphos methyl, diazinon, dimethoate, methidathion, parathion methyl, and quinalphos) used to control Dacus oleae was studied. Degradation of pesticides showed pseudo-first-order kinetics with correlation coefficients ranging between -0.936 and -0.998 and half-lives between 4.3 days for dimethoate and 10.5 days for methidathion. Residues in olive oil were greater than on olives, with a maximum concentration factor of 7. Dimethoate was the only pesticide with lower residues in the oil than on the fruits. Olive washing affects pesticide residues ranging from no reduction to a 45% decrease. During 8 months of storage of the olive oil, diazinon, dimethoate, parathion methyl, and quinalphos did not show any remarkable difference, while methidathion and azinphos methyl showed a moderate decrease.
