Red Lily Beetle


			
			 	
 	
	

Well awakened from the winter hibernation in the soil, the Red Lily Beetle is now alive and devestating the leaves and shoots of spring lilys and related plants.


10 Spot Ladybird Beetle


			
			 	
 	
	

Look twice at any Ladybirds in your garden. They are probably the common 7 Spot Ladybirds but then, count the spots! They might be the uncommon 10 Spot Ladybirds like this one recently seen at the Kilbarry Bog in Waterford City.


Invasive Red Lily Beetles


			
			 	
 	
	

A cluster of about 30 very invasive Red Lily Beetles was seen today in a City garden.
