I have some pests on my bamboo palm (Chamaedorea seifrizii). I think they're mites or possibly aphids, or both. There looks to be 2 types, one looks like dark little spots and the other definitely have legs, light brown colour and insecty. Both seem to gather on the stalk/stems where the palm frond stems from. I can't quite get a decent macro on the insects, but please take a look anyway. The photos are on my gardening blog: http://www.balconyflowers.com/2007/06/11/bamboo-palm-pests/ There are also some weird shoots coming from near the bottom of the palms. Any idea what they are?
