Bugs on Tiki Huts Guide
If you live in Florida then your tiki huts are susceptible to bugs, whether it is ants, spiders or any other type of bugs. Some bugs even eat the palms themselves. We have had countless folks who have contacted us for advice over the years in which the owners were rejected help by their original builder or thatchers. We are a highly professional tiki hut building team in Florida that has been in business for many years, not because we focus on quantity projects but because we have a great reputation we have accumulated over the course of many years. Keep in mind that we are tiki hut builders, we are not pest control professionals. Means we can not spray pesticides or insecticides for commercial purposes.
Bugs in your Tiki Hut
Although any professional will tell you that there may be an infinite type of pests that can pose a danger to your tiki hut, there is one, in particular, that is most common. When thinking of purchasing a tiki hut, look for a reputable tiki hut builder who will not disappear once your tiki hut is standing. Know that once you have a tiki hut, its your responsibility to look after the maintenance. Consider your very own tiki hut to be an extension of your home, and thus must be taken care of. A type of bug that is a nuisance to tiki hut owners is the powder post beetle.
What is a Powder Post Beetle?
A powder post beetle is a wood destroying pest that as the name suggests can turn most wood into powder. They can be a danger to any type of wood in houses, pergolas, tiki huts or any other building that is made of wood. This type of beetle can in effect damage the structural and thatch of the tiki huts or chickee huts.

Tiki Hut Caterpillar: Simplicia cornicalis
Stephen H. Brown, Lee County Horticulture Agent
Lyle Buss, UF Insect ID Lab, Gainesville
In 2006, the moth Simplicia cornicalis (Fabricius) (Lepidoptera: Erebidae) was found in Central
Florida. It was first reported in Lee County in 2014. The species is known throughout Southeast
and East Asia, from India to Southern Japan, to Australia and New Guinea, as well as from Hawaii and the South Pacific Islands. Its eventual spread throughout Florida, Mexico and Central America is possible. The larvae feed mostly on dried plant leaves, plant debris and particularly palm thatch. Due to its association with palm thatch roofs, we have been calling it the Tiki hut caterpillar.
What to Look For
Palm debris and thatch appear to be the favorite food of Tiki hut caterpillars. Here is what is
• The larvae have not been found on dead fronds still attached to living cabbage palms.
• Infestations apparently occur on fronds cut and thatched within the last six months.
• The larvae begin feeding as soon as two to three weeks after thatching.
• During the day, the larvae conceal themselves among the thatch and must be sought after to
• After dark, the larvae emerge from among the thatch and feed on the surface of roofs.
• Feeding holes and frass from the caterpillars are clearly visible on the roof.
• The larvae are food for frogs, lizards, and birds.
