Thank you for posting this thread, Jules63! I think you may have saved my rosemary! I bought one a few weeks ago from a reputable garden centre but kept it indoors as the weather up here in Scotland has been dreadful ( it snowed the first weekend in May ). I found a beetle on it, which my husband 'eradicated' and we thought no more about it. I'd never heard of rosemary beetles.
This morning I was trundling through the website and saw your thread and all the replies...so I went and had a look at the rosemary...and sure enough, there was another of the wee so-and-so's. I have, I'm sorry to say, squished it. It was so pretty and looked so innocently harmless, and I feel like a murderer now. But if it's the thug that these responses suggest I can probably live with myself. I have put the corpse on the bird table, so it's life was not in vain.
