Hi all, can anyone tell me what these bugs are and also advise how to get rid of them? They are all over my lilies!

    Soapy water in a spray bottle works really well for them. The ecover type natural soaps are ideal. The soap blocks their pores and stops them breathing.
    Tradition is just peer pressure from dead people

    Hopefully your local ladybirds and blue tits will notice they're there before too long, and start to hoover them up.   :)

    Generally nature provides its own balance, if you can be patient... you can reduce the numbers by squirting them with a hosepipe, in the meantime.
    Since 2019 I've lived in east Clare, in the west of Ireland.
