In a very short time I saw the Oryctes rhinocerosen, Coconut rhinoceros beetle for the third time.

In our garden in Bangkok's suburbs. We have only one Coconut tree and one Roystona Regia, but there are sufficient other kinds of palm trees around. The bug is very dangerous for the Palm trees: it only bore a whole of about four centimeter in the trunk of the tree and the tree start dying:

You can see how tall they are! When we have to take it down we have to hire a real big crane!

And yes! After some years there we go!
