The red palm weevil is the culprit of the death of thousands of palm trees each year in our country. It is a curculionoid beetle species, which entered Spain in 1993 from the Granada coast.

There began its innumerable damages in the diverse types of palm trees existing in our country.

Since then, the red weevil has become a veritable pest that affects a large number of Communities in Spain, especially those located in coastal areas, and its rate of expansion is being unstoppable as well as the damage caused to palm trees.
