Re: lily beetles
I wanted to revive this post to see what you ended up doing. I just found Lily leaf beetles for the first time, and talking to some of my demoralized friends, I’m tempted to pull up all my lilies while I still can (I’m not particularly attached to them, though they’re my major source of summer bloom for a period).
Did you have luck with neem oil? Is it a losing battle? I just can’t handle picking and squishing everyday.
