I have just found my first lilly beetles of the year on my fritillaries. So be on the look out and happy squashing
I'd better check mine tomorrow.
Until about 5 years ago I'd never seen one.
Alive and kicking in my garden
Saw my first ones last week on lillies and fritillaria - yeeuch!
Growing lilies for the first time this year ..... I'm waiting for the inevitable onslaught
Had a look out today but couldn't see any. Mind you not all my Lilies have sprouted yet.
Four this week

My first last week on my Ceanothus, interestingly enough, I had discarded a pile of compost under the Ceanothus that had been used to pot my lilies.It had a few rotten lily scales in it.
indeed, get the tea strainer out, we have also found a few - why can't they take a hint - better yet, how can we teah some of the birds that they are delicious to eat? Mind, it is is possible that they are not, that colour doesn't usually occur on anything that tastes good to something!
Yes have found them on my frittilarias. Its quite satisfying to sqush the little bu@@##
