It gives me great pleasure to communicate with you all through my web portal “RED WEEVIL”, since its launching in the year 2008. However, due to my prior commitments and preoccupation, I was unable to update the website for quite some and it was riddled with cyberattacks and we have pull it down and relaunch a fresh one. Unfortunately, all the information especially the comments in the blog were lost. During these difficult times of Covid19 pandemic all over the world, many activities have been shelved or cancelled, the chances of the increase in incidence of the pest is a reality due to scale down of surveys and surveillance which is the backbone of control strategies. Hence, it is imperative that all stakeholders are on their guard irrespective of the region and utilize the available tools and means to keep the pest under check.
I assure all readers that from now onwards, the site will be updated regularly with all the latest information on Red Palm Weevil, Rhynchophorus ferrugineusOliv. (RPW). I will be extremely happy to share my knowledge and experience through my portal and answer questions regarding the management aspects of this dangerous pest distributed in many countries and continents from this month October 2020. I seek the cooperation of researchers, teachers, extensions workers, students, small and large farmers and others to work towards the global management of Red Palm Weevil, to increase productivity and production of date fruits. As all of us date fruits have wonderful nutritional and health improving properties as established through documentation in ancient texts and modern-day research articles. With these few words, I once again welcome all old and new readers back to my website “redweevil.com”.
