Those lily beetles were mating, so you now need to check beneath every leaf for the eggs. Luckily, the eggs are also bright red so easily spotted! If you let them hatch, you'll soon find little brown gooey blobs appearing (the larvae, which live inside their own excrement - yuck!) and can devastate lily plants in very short order. Squash on sight!
