A PALM'S WORST ENEMY.....

If you ever meet this guy, it means you have an attractive palm tree in your neighborhood!
In Italian they call him Punterolo Rosso, the killer of palm trees.
It has destroyed a coastline of palms, and no one is able to find neither a
cemical nor a natural way to get rid of him!
It's about 3 cm long and really grouse! This one I found under our back yard palm,
which is NOT healthy! For sure it ends up as several of our neighbors palms;
cut off at the root!
It's sad, thinking about how many years the palms need to grow this big.
It's incredible what he can do with a palm in short time, see images here!
