I have a bug eating my silver birch leaves, what is it?
gloucestershire, United Kingdom
I have green irridescent beetles munching on the leaves of my silver birch trees. I have never seen them before, we have had the trees for about 3 - 4 years in the garden. The look very similar to vine weevles, but are metallic, almost lime green in colour. Any ideas?
Thanks for your replies. I don't think it is a shield bug. These beetles are long and thin and have a metallic sheen. They don't appear to be on any of my other plants.
