What can I do to get rid of a ladybird type insect that lays it eggs on the Lily, when they hatch they cover the plant in black mucky stuff.

Lily beetles

Reply from Georgie

Hi Rita

The pest you are describing is Lily beetle. All you can do is make a daily inspection of your plants and gather and kill the adult beetles. I do this by knocking them into deep plant saucer and then crushing them. I hate doing it but I love my Lilies more.

Also remove the gungy stuff that looks like bird poo. This is covering their larvae , wear gloves it's yucky stuff. I used a Bader bug killer , never returned
