Ah, the red lily beetle...It´s a remarkably pretty beetle, but because 
of it, I stopped trying to grow lilies in Massachusetts. I tried 
removing beetles and larvae by hand, but it wasn´t effective, and the 
nasty poisons didn´t work either. I used to have a pretty fine lily 
collection. Now there are no lilies at all in the garden.

Bless the entomology department of the University of Rhode Island! 
Perhaps I will be able to grow lilies again.
