The saltcedar leaf beetle was introduced into the U.S. to help control saltcedar--an invasive and noxious tree in the western U.S. At times, the beetle will also attack athel, a desirable species that is related to saltcedar. This publication explains the biology of the beetle and ways of controlling it on athel. (5 pp., 1 table) By: Mark A. Muegge
