gladioli

yes..definately lillies..the sticky things on it are the lilly beetle lavae..yuck..I attacked mine yesterday...pair of scissors with bowl underneath & cut leaves with offenders on ..then boiling water over them..yep..I dont want them..drained & put in bin.. any others then put gloves on ..inside that black mass is the grubs..

So if you see bright red beetle on them..put a hand underneath because as soon as u touch them the blighters drop off somewhere..catch it & squish it..good luck..

ah, my thoughts were right then...as I sat watching them the ants were just running up/down..... so am afraid tonight got my gloves on & did alot of squishing...pulled one plant out that died through blk fly...tomorrow have to cut right back lupins as covered in green fly...leaves are sticky etc...where are the ladybirds...
