weevilled washingtonia
« on: October 16, 2013, 05:43:16 PM »
does anybody recognise damage to a washingtonia made from palm weevils ? this palm has never had a problem and now it looks sickly ! the gardener sprayed the tree with insecticides for weevils and I wonder if it is weevil damage or chemical residue from the spraying tank. some leaves are half dead/half alive. the growing point is leaning also, but the most central leaves in the growing point are still alive ! any suggestions welcome !
