R is for Revolting
How can something as handsome as the Lily Beetle ( See H is for Handsome), have such revolting offspring? They are fat and maggoty, and live in a lump of sticky black poo, glued to the underside of the lily leaves by their crafty parents. As mentioned in the previous post (H is for Handsome), I remove them with the hose, set on a gentle spray, and as they drop, I collect them by hand, into a container bound for the compost heap. Yuk.
