Something is Eating my Pheonix Robellini
The other day I noticed a lot of drooping fronds and brown dead fronds on my Robellini's. Went out last night to trim them away and it was immediatly obvious something has been chewing, yes literally chewing, on the stem ends mainly at the top end near the base of new growth. Some frond stems were literally stripped more than a foot from the trunk. I first thought was my yard guys tried to trim them for me with a weed wacker they were so rough. Bugs do not touch these so I would guess is it a rodent, Racoon, Possum, HUGE rat or ??? We are in a typical neighborhood setting and been here four years and I have seen nothing like it !! Anybody have a clue what kind of critter I would be looking out for?? Wish I could post some photo's!!
