Seems we have a bumper crop of Red Lily beetles this year.
They make a mess of the buds, leaves and flowers
The emerge out of the ground as red beetles lay eggs on the underside of the leaves. They mature into grubs and eat every part of the the Lily plant. They cover themselves in their own fecal mater making themselves in to moving turds.
They are an invasive species from Asia and Europe and make a mess of the flowers.
Eventually they mature in to these tiny red beetles, that lay eggs on the underside of the leaves, that become the turd grubs. Then drop to the ground and get buried, and the cycle starts over again.
