Culprit caught red-handed!

Red lily beetle

Many thanks to M Jennings for his warning about the Red Lily beetle (The Village Views, July/August).

After reading this, I checked my lilies which had been looking very “moth eaten”, for which I had been blaming the slugs, and caught the red-backed culprit red handed (right)!

Several have since been despatched, as directed, and although badly chewed some of the buds have now flowered.
