Lily Leaf Beetle - Control



They don't have a lot of pest control problems. Diverse planting helps immensely, resulting in a robust garden. One of the biggest pest control problems they face here is the LILY LEAF BEETLE. It is moving up from the Boston area and devastating their Lilies. The adult Lily Leaf Beetle is bright red, the larva is a little slug-like looking thing that buries itself in its own excrement. Thus it's unpleasant to rub against and does tremendous damage to the lilies, the larva alone can devastate a plant in a weeks time. Gail will either hand pick the beetles or larva, squish them or douse them in soapy water.
