Re: Lily beetle

These #$#@^%$&** beetles arrived in our area (Central Maine) last 
season. I first noticed them when they defoliated an Asiatic Lilly that 
I had. What a surprise & how gross to take the eggs off. I called the U 
of Maine & they said to use neem & hand pick the tomato red beetles off. 
I had them under control before the end of the season (I have about 100 
plants)  but I'm afraid I will have to do the same from now on. The chap 
as the U of M said the best way to control them is to stop growing the 
lilies!! Some day perhaps.--- NOT---
