I have these short fat worm like pest that is sucking all the color out of my lilly flower heads and sitting on my marigolds etc. What are they, and how do I get rid of them. Also, I had golfers or something eat all my tulup bulbs. I could see the holes. How do I get rid of them?

Thank You, Donne

Without knowing what the pests are (and I can't tell from your description) I can't really make a control suggestion. Hand picking the pests is the best approach. Collect a few, put them in a plastic baggie, and take them to your local cooperative extension office or well staffed nursery for help in identifying them and selecting a control strategy. Good luck with your garden!!
