Elm Leaf Beetle Xanthogaleruca luteola

Elm Leaf Beetle Xanthogaleruca luteola – pest that slowly migrating from Sydney Basin to the Blue Mountains…


Elm Leaf Beetle indigenous to Europe. First spotted in Australia in 1989, population increased rapidly, spreading through Victoria and other states. Due to climate change and the rise of temperature, Sydney basin is becoming too hot for the beetle to inhabit comfortably. We have discovered more and more Elm leaf beetle infestation cases in the Blue Mountains since 2017, as Blue Mountains becoming warm and more idea habitat for the Elm leaf beetles.

Early sign of infestation can easily be treated and the tree would recover gradually. It would be a challenge for recovery at it's 4th years of infestation.

As soon as you see the sign of Elm Leaf Beetle, call us for a consultation and book a treatment.
