The elm leaf beetle (Xanthogaleruca luteola) is a common pest of elm trees in Canberra.
Elm leaf beetles (pictured left) are about 5mm long with a yellow / green / brown body with two wide stripes down their back. They destroy elm trees by eating away at the leaves, which defoliates the tree and makes it vulnerable to disease.
Elm leaf beetles thrive in Canberra spring time, when the weather begins to warm. This is also the ideal time to treat them.
