I've seen my first Viburnum Leaf Beetle. Has anyone else? Do you have strategies for control?

I knew I had posted this somewhere and found it under Mugo Pine sawfly problem. I'm sorry it wasn't in a more useful place. Posted by corapegia z5 NY (My Page) on Mon, Jun 2, 08 at 8:52

I will probably loose 2 mature viburnums this year, I found the European Viburnum leaf beetle larva all over and the leaves totally chewed and brown and yucky. I'm trying to decide wheather I should just get rid of them or try to save them. I hate to spray poisons because the birds also feed on them. I first saw the pest last year.

Here is a link that might be useful: viburnum leaf beetle
