Help! Adonidia Palm Foliage Problem

Posted by zdaudert (My Page) on

Hello, I have three "sets" of Adonidia palms in a garden bed that all seem to have the same pest. The foliage is has yellow/brown spots and, if I look closely at the "higher" fronds, there are very tiny things that might be bugs. They look like tiny worms but I can't detect them moving or anything. It's hard to see any details on them as they are so small.

I'm hoping someone on this forum knows what they are and how I might get rid of them.

I've posted a couple of photos here:

Thank you!
