A New Enemy

I discovered these cute red beetles on my Asian lily. Fortunately the lily is in a pot on the porch, isolated from the lilies in the garden. As pretty as these little beetles are, they will swarm your lilies and completely destroy them. They are an invasive species, showed up on the east coast in early 2000's, and have no natural predators here. The Sevin is coming out of the shed again.
