Anna writes, "I have no idea if you interested, but I found this little one on my plants in Lindsay, Ontario."

I reply, "Thanks, Anna. Nice picture. This one was introduced by government agencies into North America from Europe to try to control leafy spurge. It has been extending its range. I do not know if it has been effective in combating the spreead of leafy spurge."
