keep looking for lily beetles

By now, eggs laid by the first generation of scarlet lily beetles to emerge from winter hiding will have hatched into larvae that munch on leaves, pupate in the soil and turn into more adult beetles. These won't mate until next year, but they will be active for the rest of the summer , feeding on your lilies and causing damage to  leaves and petals.
