Coconut palm monitoring: The palms in the age group of 5-20 years should be regularly surveyed for identifying any infestation. This has to be done atleast once in a month.
Date palm monitoring: In date palm gardens, young palms should be checked thoroughly. Palms with offshoots on the stem should be subjected to more vigorous inspection so as to identify any hidden pest infestation. As the offshoots breakout from the side of the mother’s stem, many crevices are created, facilitating the entry of weevil adults for egg laying and further development. Hence, the growers should employ good methods of survey and surveillance to avoid any fresh infestation.
