In the past 2 weeks somethings been enjoying my xmas palms. The critter chews into the branch and bores down the stem hollowing it out. At which point a good breeze and the frons break off. Pretty much destroyed 10 xmas palms in 2 weeks. Any ideas? What pesticide to salvage whats left. Ive never seen this before.
