7.5 years later:  I'm very happy to report that I have not lost one more palm to the ox beetle.  I lost three palms within 2 weeks in 2008 which was pretty devastating at the time.

I mulched my palms with rocks.  I cut the ends of cheap nursery pots, slipped it over the palm and used it to hold the rocks.    I also used hardware cloth for one palm, but wouldn't recommend it, because I left the hardware cloth in place for too long.
