Bugs

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! 

Thanks

    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.
    A great library has something in it to offend everybody.

    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.
