A few years ago, hordes of highly damaging invasive pests called the South American Palm Weevils (SAPW) made their way to the palm species in the USA. However, palm trees are also susceptible to Ganoderma Butt Rot, Leaf Spot Diseases, Fusarium Wilt, Bud Rot, etc.
The growth of the weevil is multiplying enormously, and their infestation has spread rapidly all over the USA. Now, they are affecting 35 different types of host plants.
The weevils in their larvae stage can stay in host plants for 5 months, causing severe damage to the health and vitality of palm trees. Also, the single palm tree can host up to 1000 weevils. Thus, professional South American Palm Weevil treatment becomes crucial.
