Conspicuous adults up to 8 mm long with yellow and black wing cases
feed on asparagus leaves and stems from May onwards. If the bark
around the stem circumference has been completely removed, the
asparagus dries out and turns yellow-brown.
The adult asparagus beetles are 6-8mm long, black with six yellow
blotches on their wings and a red thorax.
