Mites or white fly larvae may attach themselves to the underside of palm fronds. These can be attacked with the use of insecticides and fungicides in the form of Neem Oil or a fungicide. Spraying your plant once every few months during its growing period. Avoid spraying when the soil is dry.
Mites are small moving pinpoints of red or brown. Severe infestations leave “spider webs” on the underside of the fronds.
