My lilies are practically eaten by these bugs. Do I have to dig up the bulbs and throw them away to end this?

No, you can use many different natural plant oils to get rid of these. Unfortunately, in my area, these were released and have now driven true ladybugs away. The Asian ladybeetle will eat bugs, but they also dine on plants, and that is the problem.
