Lily Beetle control

Tip from Terence Pearce

I control Lily Beetle in my garden by ; picking off and destroying but I don’t have many beetles but lots of lilies because:
Take 2 decent sized garlic cloves boil in 1 litre of water simmer for 3 minutes and cool. Once cold sieve with fine mesh or I use muslin and decant into a sprayer. Spray lilies once a fortnight from time leaves appear and in growth until they die down. Doesn’t effect the smell and seems to make the beetles disappear?

lily beetle

Comment from peter oliver

these are extremely destructive little pests i do have a lot of lilies and i have found that carefully checking the undersides of the leaves for the eggs can help if you remove them early then you can limit the damage to your plants
