Most Common Central Florida Palm Tree Pests
Some of the most common pests that infest palm trees in Central Florida include:
Spiraling Whitefly: This invasive species infests various palm species in Central Florida. They feed on the undersides of palm leaves, causing leaf yellowing, wilting, and premature dropping.
Royal Palm Bug: These small, yellow-brown insects primarily target royal palms. They feed on the leaves, causing damage such as leaf discoloration and distortion.
Ganoderma Butt Rot: This fungal disease is a significant concern for palm trees in Central Florida. Ganoderma butt rot causes the decay of the lower trunk, leading to structural weakness and eventual collapse of the palm. Infected palms may exhibit symptoms such as wilting, leaf yellowing, and conk formations at the base of the trunk.
Palm Weevils: Palm weevils beetles that bore into the trunks of palm trees, causing structural damage and eventual death if left untreated. Infestations may be detected by the presence of exit holes, frass (sawdust-like material), or wilting foliage.
Sago Palm Scale: While primarily affecting sago palms, this invasive scale insect can also infest other palm species in Central Florida. Sago palm scale feeds on the leaves, causing yellowing, wilting, and premature dropping of foliage. Severe infestations can weaken the affected palms and impact their overall health.
Coconut Mite: This microscopic mite infests coconut palms, causing damage to the fruits and reducing yields. Coconut mite infestations may result in malformed or discolored coconuts, as well as a decline in palm health. Infested palms may exhibit symptoms such as bronzing or necrosis of young leaves.
