Lily beetles are evil and can only be destroyed by crushing or spraying with Provado Ultimate Bug Killer. Look under the leaves for the little devils and kill them or you’ll have problems next spring. New lilies are treated so you generally get the first year clear and then get beetled the following year, so its either new lilies every year or seek and destroy.

Red Lily beetle


I had some really nice Lillies this year, which flowered well with huge blooms. Unfortunately, the rest of the plant was destroyed by red lily beetle. They are still on there now and I am no afraid it will really harm the plants. Is there anything I can do?
