Picudos. Weevils

Many beetles or weevils are considered pests in crops or stored food, but sometimes, the weevils have worked perfectly as biological controllers of non-native plants. Sign in to join mission

En esta misión se pueden incluir todos los picudos. El Picudo rojo es la plaga más preocupante actualmente en las palmeras de España. Originario de las áreas tropicales del Sudeste Asiático y Polinesia, este curculiónido está aumentando su área de distribución, habiendo colonizado la península Arábiga y detectado en Almuñécar (Granada) en 1994, donde miles de palmeras están sucumbiendo desde entonces al ataque de este insecto. En seis u ocho meses, una palmera infectada se seca y muere. Afecta, entre otras, a la Palmera datilera (Phoenix dactylifera). This mission can include all weevils. The red palm weevil is the main pest concern now in the palm of Spain. Native to tropical areas of Southeast Asia and Polynesia, this weevil is increasing its range, having colonized the Arabian Peninsula and detected in Almuñecar (Granada) in 1994, where thousands of palm trees are succumbing to the attack since the insect. In six or eight months, an infected palm tree withers and dies. Affects, among others, the Date palm (Phoenix dactylifera).
