Lily Beetle and their larvae attack the leaves, petals and seeds of lilies and fritillaries ruining their appearance PLUS if the damage is extensive enough it can stop the plant flowering the following year. Protect your plants from Lily Beetle by spraying with Grazers Lily Beetle Spray BEFORE the pest attacks.
The Lily Beetle is about 8 - 10 mm long and are easy to spot as they are bright red. The adults spend the winter in sheltered places in the garden (not necessarily near lilies) before emerging in late March - May to feed on the lilies. They lay their eggs underneath the leaves throughout the summer and these eggs take about a week to hatch into beetle larvae, which then feed on lily foliage leaving holes in the flowers and leaves. The larvae are 6-8mm long, but they can be hard to spot as they will disguise themselves as bird droppings by covering themselves in excrement. They pupate in the ground and then 2 -3 weeks later they emerge as adult lily beetles. The bright red adult lily beetles feed on the flowers, leaves and stems of the lily before laying more eggs.
Protect your plants by spraying with Grazers Lily Beetle Spray. Simply spray onto the foliage of the lilies and fritillaries in the spring as new growth emerges and continue to spray throughout the growing season. The spray is taken up by the plant making the foliage unpalatable to the lily beetles, so the beetles and the larvae won't feed. Supplied as a 750ml Ready to Use Spray or as a 350ml Concentate (makes 7 litres of spray) for use in your own sprayer.
