Does anyone know what these bugs are and how I get rid of them?
Lancashire, United Kingdom
There are hundreds and hundreds of these small brown bugs on my bushes outside. They seem to be eating holes in the leaves and they are making a mess of the bushes. I have not had this problem before, the bushes have been there for about 6 years. I tried cutting the bushes back but I can still see hundreds of these bugs all over it. They are about 6-7mm long
and they look as though they have hard shell like backs, like beetles I suppose. I haven't seen any fly, just crawl. How can I tackle this problem? These bushes looked nice at the beginning of the year.
