My husband has grown lilies in pots this year, and checked them, killing the lily beetles he found, on a daily basis. He is keeping them in the pots to overwinter, hoping they will flower again next year. Does this mean he will be preserving the lily beetles too?
Personally, I gave up on lilies several years ago, as the continual checking for these beetles became too much of a chore. They are one of my husband's favourite flowers.
