i noticed half dozen red beetles on my lillie plants eating away the leaves this afternoon leaves having a fair bit of damage they are planted in a terracota pot



squish them and look for there larve which hid themselves in the own poo. it looks a bit like bird dropings. There eggs you will find underneath the leaves.

Look at my blog it is all about lillie beetles.

yes - check out Treesandthings blog - we're doing a survey to try to establish the best time of day to go out lillie beetle hunting - more the merrier if you want to get involved :-)

There is a spray called Provado. Spray late at night after birds and bees have gone to bed. I did this year twice only as soon as I saw the first beetle. Lilies were lovely this year.
