The Lily Beetle seems to be making great success in invading lilies beds everywhere..
I managed to kill 3 adults and have not seen anymore but no doubt they are out there somewhere....
what is the best approach to stop these..

I read on a site they say spray the ground before the lilies emerge.......
and also heard potato dust works..
neem oil is another one I heard

but want to hear from the experts on here

It does not sound like these pests are going anywhere in the near future that is why I thought of a sticky....

so far not much damage here and seems to be only in the one bed............

any thoughts?? all ears here

also Ontario had a huge ban on most pesticides so that does not help that much either
but lets hear your thoughts
