Introduction of RPW

   Information on Red Palm Weevil was first published in 1891 in India. This pest was first described as a serious pest of the coconut palm in 1906, while in 1917 it was described as a serious pest in the date palm in the Punjab, India.

In 1918, RPW caused serious damage to the date palm in Mesopotamia (Iraq) but no insect specimens were collected to confirm it.

RPW entered and was discovered during the mid-1980s in the Arabian Gulf countries.  However, it has become a most destructive pest of date palms in the Middle East.
