A Lethal Pest of the Date Palm Tree The Red Palm Weevil
The red palm weevil is a lethal pest of date palms – infested palms often die if not detected early and treated with insecticides. The red palm weevils are large insects (greater than 25mm long). The RPW prefers to infest palms below the age of twenty years, where the stem of the young palm is soft, juicy and easily penetrated . The infestation begins with females boring holes inside date tissues, followed by the insertion of eggs (each female can lay 300 eggs).
The hatched larvae burrow and feed extensively inside the internal parts of palm trees. Death of the main trunk tissue occurs, and this is followed by collapse of the infested tree . The thumb sized grubs make so much noise eating that if you stand next to an infested tree you can actually hear them munching their way through the trunk .
