Recommendations for Control

After speaking to an Entomologist, he is recommending physical barriers as the method to control.

A friend of mine from the Palm Society has been using rocks as barriers.

Dr. Bogran also recommended using metal screening as a barrier.

Both methods prevent the insect from digging into the ground next to the palm.

The metal will also prevent entrance around the base of the palm.
