Lily Beetle. Does the lily beetle,( the horrible red one, which eats and eats at my lovely lillies) survive our winters? I found one the other day ( squashed it) but was wondering if they can over winter in our climate.
If so how and where do they hibernate is it in the soil?
Had lots on the lillies last year, was on beetle watch daily, lost count of how many I flattened, seems so cruel, but I am not prepared to lose my lillies to the blighters!
