If you haven’t seen the devastating effects of this vicious little bug, you’ll know it when you see it. It’s destroying our beautiful, iconic Canary Island Date Palms at alarming numbers. In a matter of 5 years when the first infected palm was discovered hundreds of palms have been infected and killed by this weevil.

These trees take years to reach the heights that make them so beautiful and impressive. It’s scary to think that we could lose all these palms and the next generations won’t have these giant palms to admire.
