Re: lily beetles
Lily Beetles will be my undoing. I have so many oriental and asiatic lillies in my gardens and they are devastated! Summer oil didn’t work, and hand-picking is difficult since I am a weekend resident and can’t seem to stay ahead of them. I was in my Berkshire garden for the whole week last week and each day I squashed many many beetles, and the next day there were always more! Will they overwinter in zone 5, or will this be a one-time shot, does anyone know? I am heartbroken over my (formerly)beatiful lillies. With the foliage nearly gone, they will surely not reappear next year. Woe is me!
