The Q&A Archives: Lilioceris bug

Question: I live in central Massachusetts......Is there a product to elimnate the lilioceris insect which has been destroying my lillies for several years now?
I hand pick and kill them but they still do much damage.

Answer: The lily leaf beetle can be controlled with a product called BioNeem. Neem kills larvae and repels adults and there is some residual effect. Bayer Advanced is one brand name, but there are others, as well. Be sure to apply according to label directions. Best wishes with your lilies!
