Kuna tinxaka totala ta tihumba letinga kona tikumeka e xifundzeni xa Western Cape, xikombiso, humba ya buraweni, white dune na leyi ya banded conical. Tihumba tikhandziya nsinya wa mudiriva hi tshindi laha ti onhaka swirhabyana leswi swahaku hlukaka na matluka ya wona. Nsinya wa mudiriva wufanele kutshama wukarhi wulangutiwa leswaku awuse hlaseriwa.

Vulawuri hiti khemikali byinga tirhisiwa byo tani hi xikatsani xa tihumba lexi totiwaka laha kutsakamaka kasi hile tlhelo masekwa yatirhisiwa tani hindlela ya vulawuri. Swimilani leswi byariwaka tani hinseketelo eka masimu ya madiriva na nhova, kufanele kuva ku byariwa swimilani leswinga tiseki tihumba emasinwini. Tlhoma tihlo eka tindzhawu leti tihumba titswalanaka swinene ehandle ka masimu ya madiriva, ngopfu ngopfu laha kungana swinkobyana swa mati.

Tinjiya ta timhondzo to leha hiswinwana switsotswana leswi hahaka swi hlaselaka masimu ya madiriva hi xiyimo xale henhla. Timbhovo ematlukeni i xikombiso lexikulu swinene xa nhlaselo hitinjiya leti. Leti tihambana swinene na ti snout beetles leti dyaka lemakumu ka matluka ya madiriva, tinjiya leti tidya hinkwako ematlukeni. Maxelo ya hoxa xandla eka leswi tinjiya leti tivonakisaka xiswona: laha kuhisaka, kunga oma hi hixixika kupfuneta swinene eka kutlhotlhoriwa ka matandza. Akuna swidlaya switsotswana leswinga tsarisiwa leswi lawulaka tinjiya leti, kambe leswi lawulaka ti snout beetles swinga pfuna kuhunguta vukona bya tinjiya leyi. Kuna vulavisisi lebyinga endliwa eka tindlela to lawula tinjiya leti xikanwe na swinwana leswi hlaselaka.
