I have a red beatle-like bug eating my oriental lilies. Is there anything, preferably non-toxic, that will dispose of the beasts!

Sounds like the red lily beetle and these pests can really damage your lilies. Use a neem oil based product such as Rose Defense. It works well against the lily beetles and is safe to use on lilies.
