Red weevil treatment
Red weevil treatment in Alicante, Murcia, Valencia and Castellón.
At Raíz Verde we are constantly updating ourselves to keep your palm trees protected against any type of plague. We are specialists in treatment for the elimination of Red weevil and the processionary.
He Red weevil it mainly affects date palms and Canary palms. In their larval stage, they feed on the interior of the palm tree trunk, causing structural damage and, if not treated in time, their death would occur.
It is recommended to carry out a fumigation in date palms and Canariensis every 2 or 3 months with the appropriate products
Type of palm trees most attacked by Red weevil
Phases of red weevil infection
Early stage weevil infection
In this phase, with the naked eye we can observe a small deviation of the main eye of the palm tree, that is, in the nascent leaves. Also, we will find bite marks on some of its leaves in a triangular or circular shape.
At this time we can visualize a greater deviation of the main eye of the palm tree. Also, there is a decay in some palms caused by the loss of their natural rigidity, due to the fact that weevil larvae are beginning to eat the attachments of the palm to the trunk.
Critical stage weevil infection
Arrived at this circumstance, the palm tree is in a critical state. This means that, in the event that the copy is saved, it will be marked for life. The main sign of affectation that we can find is a pronounced inclination of the palm tree's main eye. Therefore, if a correction is not applied in time, it could rapidly evolve to a Phase 4, converting its possibility of recovery to a fairly low percentage, and could even end the life of the specimen. In this phase, a quick action could determine the salvation or not of the palm tree.
It is here that we enter the last phase in which the palm tree would have some chance of recovery. This probability will depend solely on whether the weevil larvae have touched the specimen's bud or not, or partially. In the event that the bud has not been touched or is partially touched, the palm tree will have to be carefully evaluated to plan the best possible performance. Visually, we will observe the main eye of the palm tree completely fallen, even looking practically towards the ground. Likewise, the vast majority of the leaves that accompany it show signs of decay.
End-stage red weevil infection
In this last phase, a professional can verify that the larvae have finished off the specimen's yolk, thus making the recovery of said specimen unfeasible. The visual aspect of the palm tree in this case is very similar to that of Phase 4, depending on how long it may take in this situation, we can find the main eye of the palm tree completely detached or the palms completely decayed or dry.
Therefore, at this point, the only thing to do is talar la palmera.

Palm Palm Fumigation Methods for the Treatment of Red Palm Weevil
By spraying with a gun we achieve a very effective result, since the angle of application is wide. Thus, it allows that with a good application all the part to be fumigated is covered. In this way, we will leave the palm trees impregnated with the product to prevent the setting of the weevil.
This method is used for the tallest specimens that cannot be reached with the pistol due to their short range. The pole allows us to reach it because its sections position the application tube at a much higher height. In this way, thanks to the pole, we will be able to fumigate the entire wall and central leaves of the palm tree.
Injections or endotherapy
To carry out this technique, we use injections that pierce the trunk of the specimen and allow the product to protect the specimen from the inside. From the company we recommend that in specimens of Phoenix Canariensis if you want to use this method it is also complemented with some spraying.
In green root we try to save any specimen no matter how damaged it is. In the event that nothing really can be done, we make available to our client the logging service and collection of remains.
