ELM LEAF BEETLE TREATMENT
Elm leaf beetle (xanthogaleruca luteola) is a severe pest of Elm trees throughtout South Australia.
A heavy infestation of Elm Leaf Beetle can deteriorate an Elm substantially, although the tree will send out new leaves in the next season, the growth of the tree will be affected and, if Elm Leaf Beetle is not controlled, the tree may eventually die after a few years.
Elms suffering from repeated Elm Leaf Beetle infestation are also more prone to other pests and disease.
Elm Leaf Beetles are around 6mm long and yellowish to olive green with black stripes. The beetles hibernate in sheltered places during winter and emerge in spring to feed on the young leaves.
The beetles lay tiny lemon coloured eggs in clumps on the underside of leaves in spring, which hatch in 7-10 days.
Adults and larvae together can cause severe defoliation of Elms, which can weaken mature trees and reduce their aesthetic and amenity value.
Trunk injection with Imidacloprid is considered to be the most effective and environmentally sound option. The insecticide is injected directly into the trunk of the tree. The tree transports the chemical to the leaves where it kills the beetles.
If Elm Leaf Beetle is controlled early then Elm trees will recover.
