Beautiful lilies, Nate. Have you thought of finding out what the beetles like better than lilies and put some out to decoy them? Maybe something sweet like fruit. Just a thought as I feel the same way about insecticides, but those lilies are too beautiful to be beetle grub. Great photography; Rich


But I'm skeptical about them liking anything better than Lilies!  I've tried picking them off by hand, but they're clever.  As soon as you jiggle the plant, they drop off and land belly-up so you can't see them.  Bright red beetles, but with dark brown bellies.  Maybe a military surplus flame-thrower??
