Daylily Flowers Don't Open, Worms?

Cut off all the affected flower buds and destroy them and any bugs inside 
them.  As a precautionary measure, you might want to spray your daylily 
scapes as they develop with a systemic insecticide.

You might want to contact your local USDA Agricultural  Extension Agent if 
you live in the USA and report the pest.  It sounds like daylily gall midge 
to me.

Where do you grow your daylilies?
