Something is destroying my small Palms

Please see attached image. We have noticed maybe 15 Palm branches looking like they have been snapped off or just eaten through? In addition about 20% seem to be just dying after gradually turning brown. I cant see any obvious culprits ? Please see attached. Hope you can advise.

Hi Tony,

Thank you for contacting Yates.

Looks like the palm are affected by palm borers, which are the larvae of moths. Unfortunately, we haven't got any products registered against this pest. The good news is by pruning off the damaged fond and feeding with Dynamic lifter, the tree can generally recover well.  

Hope this helps and happy gardening :)
