Grazers is an effective and easy solution to prevent damage caused Red Lily Beetle on Lilies, Fritillaries and other members of the Liliaceae family.
It is ideal to use in gardens, allotments, and areas where children and pets are playing. Grazers has appeal for both the garden lovers who do not want their plants destroyed, and the environmentalists who detest chemical damage to the environment.

The lily beetle (Lilioceris Lilii) is the number one pest of lilies. It can reduce a lily plant to nothing in just a few days. Both the adult lily beetles and the horrible grubs devour lilies - leaves, flowers, and flower buds.
Adult beetles about 5-8mm (about 1/4in) long, bright red with a black head and legs emerge from the soil from late March to May, laying eggs from April until September. They overwinter in sheltered places, often in the soil but not always near lilies. Eggs are laid on the underside of leaves in groups of up to 12-15; they vary in colour from bright orange to nearly red. The grubs have dirty orangey bodies and cover themselves with their own excreta; this gives them some protection and they can be mistaken for birds' droppings. They then fall onto the ground and pupate.
