Palm Budworm
Litoprosopus coachella

The budworm is another beetle whose larvae feed on the flowers of a range of fan palms. The caterpillars are about an inch long and a pinky-green in colour. Moths are a light brown with a dark spot on each wing. The budworm is more a nuisance than a threat although intense infestations can weaken a tree. Chemicals are available to combat the budworm. Contact a local tree care specialist for details. is brought to you by
