Control Of Elm Leaf Beetle (Pyrrhalta luteola)

The most appropriate Elm Beetle control depends on the season, degree of insect infestation, tree size, tree location/siting and philosophy.

Elm Leaf Beetle infestation can defoliate a tree, if this happens continually the tree may die. Other factors such as drought, poor pruning/lopping or soil compaction will contribute to a decline in tree health. However, one or two years of Elm Beetle damage or ongoing moderate damage is very unlikely to kill the host tree, unless there are other significant contributing factors.

Currently, the most effective control measures for Elm Beetle involve chemical application. Generally trunk/stem injection or soil injection, both methods have advantages and disadvantages – there is more detail below. It is possible also to do canopy spraying, however, this is only suitable for some trees at certain times of the year and is more expensive in the long term.

If you are considering having your tree treated it is worthwhile discussing with your neighbors (who own Elm trees) if they would like to have theirs treated at the same time as there are reasonable savings available when nearby trees are treated at one visit.
