What are these caterpillers on my lilly?
Hampshire, United Kingdom
My lilly has been attacked by caterpillars. At least that’s what I think they are. They can only been described as like black snot and when you touch them they disintegrate. How can I get rid of them? They have eaten all the leaves and sent them light green. Most of the plant is dying. Help please.
Thank you all for your answers. You have been very helpful. I have since killed most of the horrible beetles and just hope the plant recovers in time for next year.
