Few plants are ignored by insect pests. Beautiful plants such as roses and lilies attract them to name a few. Should we deprive ourselves of their beauty?
To get rid of lily beetle, you should start monitoring very early in the spring, as soon as your lilies emerge. Keep your eyes open throughout the summer. Their bright red color makes them easy to spot. Small holes in the leaves confirm their presence.
INSECTICIDES: TROUNCE for yard and garden (economical in concentrate: potassium salts of fatty acids and pyrethrin). End-All, etc.
PERMETHRIN-based insecticide for large infestations (e.g. Ambush, etc.).
These insecticides kill on contact with the insect.
There are other products available in stores, ask for advice on the product that suits you best. Above all, read the instructions before use.
Our leaflets on the culture:
We prepared for you, leaflets on the culture of the lily and the iris. You can view them on the screen and/or print them out. You will find in the lily leaflet useful information about the red lily beetle, an insect pest.
We hope that these documents will help you to achieve success in your projects.
