Pests and Diseases!

Flea beatle?

Is it doing this or is this a slug? I got a lot of those too.

My Lilies have multiplied this year and I still have no idea what kind they are. They really do start out lovely but the same as last year, something attacked them, a fungus maybe, not sure. I would be glad to know though if anyone can help. By the end of last year they really did look pitiful and I did not think they would return. But they did...and multiplied. I only started with about 5 maybe. I transplanted them from another part of the yard where I found them hiding.

I see the slug, and the spider web. Hope it is a good spider and not a mite.

So close to blooming I can't wait!


  1. Oh no! I'm sorry to hear about your garden pests. I'm having a hairy day with mine too... I'm borrowing a book, "Garden Insects of North America" by Whitney Cranshaw, and I think you're right. They look like potato flea beetles. This is a *great* book, as long as you can take looking at some of the nasty bugs! Definitely don't want to eat while glancing through this one! Cheers.

  2. Gardening and pest control is at least as old as agriculture. It's an industry that's growing rapidly. τερμιτες φαρμακο κυπρος

  3. The key is to get rid of the bugs before they have a chance to roam around your kitchen. If you let it go they can breed and become a much bigger problem. טרמיטים הדברה
