Lily beetles

Postby Diane » Sat Jul 06, 2019 8:43 pm

Well, I've learnt something new. Apparently lily beetles scream when you pick them off a lily and it makes all the other lily beetles throw themselves to the ground. (from Hampton Court programme). I've just been out to inspect my lilys but not a l b to be found so I can't confirm. They must have been warned :roll:
