A single spray application of carbaryl (Sevin) provided control of the elm leaf beetle for an entire season in tests at Bishop in Inyo County. Effective control is believed to be contingent upon timing the application after the majority of the eggs have been laid in the spring, and the young larvae have begun to feed.
