Palms get pampered


THE Finestrat council workers have been out in force and completed a fumigation campaign against the processionary caterpillars and the red palm weevils.

The technical services department has concentrated on the Castell and Balcon de Finestrat areas for treating the palms against the caterpillars, and the many green areas have been treated against the palm weevils.

The councillor for Technical Services and Works said: “Every year between January and March our teams battle against these fearsome pests, in the case of the caterpillar the timing is perfect as they have not yet fallen to the ground and therefore we can avoid as much as possible contact with pets or children at the local surrounding schools.”
