What to do about lily borer

Symptoms

Our gogga of the month for April is the lily borer. Symptoms of these critters include larvae or holes in stalks, leaves and bulbs of lilies, and amaryllids.

What does this mean for me/my plants?

If not treated, the worms multiply and the entire plant will be eaten and then die.

Suggested Action

Apply contact insecticide every two weeks to control. Visit your local GCA garden centre for advice on the best insecticide for you!
