The other day I noticed a bright red insect on the leaf of the Tiger Lily plant. At first I thought, wow, cool little bug with the most vibrant red colour, looks beautiful against the bright green lily leaves. Little did I know this is a dangerous littler bugger that can end up destroying your whole crop of lilies!
I started getting concern after seeing this insect on the tiger lily again a few days later, and then again the next day. It made me wonder if this bug is specific to this type of plant. With a quick Google research and voila, found out this is the Red Lily Leaf Beetle. You can read about it here.
Need to keep an eye out for them the next few days and hopefully catch a few of them before they get a chance to eat all the leafs and flower buds!
