Anybody know what is eating my viburnum opulus sterile (snowball) same happened last year. It grew nicely then leaves eaten and curling up? Help!! ( oh I had to copy the name off the label, I'm not that clever)

On plant Viburnum opulus



does it look like it has been shot? it is Viburnum beetle, a ruddy nuisance.

Are the leaves being totally eaten away, if so then it could be Viburnum Beetle, if so then bugkiller i find works well on eradicating this pest, julien.
