lilly beetles - Knowledgebase Question

Ara there any products out there that can get rid of those little red beetles that recently appeared in the area? I sprayed them with raid last year, but this made the plants wilt also. This year so far, I have been picking them and their mess with the grub in it and squishing whatever I could find. That is the messiest part for sure Thanks Richard

Raid isn't very gentle on plants, is it? Instead, try a neem oil based spray such as Rose Defense or Bayer Rose and Flower Spray. Either will control the red lily beetles and neither will harm your plants. Best wishes with your landscape.
