Bugs Eating My Lilies

Anonymous added on October 28, 2011 | Answered

I have had for the last two years bugs climbing onto my lilies and eating them. I have no idea what kind of bugs they are, but they are reddish. They cover the stems and the blooms and kill. I've tried different organic sprays but I can't seem to kill them and they come back every year now. Any suggestions?

It's difficult to pinpoint the exact pest; however, treating the plant with neem oil is usually effective on many types of pests. Here is more information: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/plant-problems/pests/pesticides/neem-oil-uses.htm
