Artist's Description

The red lily bug, Lilioceris lilii, has been a lily pest in the UK since the early 1900’s, but this year, and so early in the year, I have seen a huge increase in numbers of this beetle in my garden. The beetle lays her eggs on lily plants, fritillaria and other related species. The grubs then munch their way along the stem of the plants ultimately killing the stem. The plant, however, will survive to return the following year.
