Please can anyone identify this beetle?

Please can anyone identify this beetle. It is shiny dark blue in colour almost black, approx 5 - 6mm in size. The beetles decimated a line of trees at the side of our house last year by eating all the leaves. I'd hoped the winter would have killed them off, but doing some gardening today I found them in the soil alive. I don't know whether these are last years beetles or whether eggs have been laid and they've hatched. I would like to find out what they are and try some pesticide on them - if anyone has any recommendations that would be great.
