Palm Weevil Alert

Postby BrianS » Sun Sep 20, 2015 2:05 pm

I live in the Apokoronas, between Kefalas and Drapanos. Although the Palm Weevil has been in this area before we have not suffered any damage... until this weekend. The noise emanating from the trunk of our largest palm was like that of a fast-boiling preserving pan.

Yes. That works. Nasty little things aren't they?
