Protect your plants from this greedy little creature with the Grazers G4 Red Lily Beetle Deterrent. It stops this common garden pest from eating the leaves, stem, buds and flowers of lilies, fritillaries and other members of the lily family.
What effect does the red lily beetle have on plants?
As well as spoiling the flowers, attacks in early summer can result in the plant forming undersized bulbs that may not flower the following year. In some parts of the country the beetles are such a problem that some gardeners end up giving up on growing lilies because they can’t save them from these voracious pests.

How can this Red Lily Beetle Deterrent help?
The Grazers G4 formula is an easy-to-use spray which discourages these beetles without doing the plants or the pests any harm. It’s easy to apply and lasts six weeks before the treatment needs to be repeated.
It’s also safe to use without harming people, pets or the environment.
The product makes the foliage taste unpleasant, so the beetles don’t want to eat it. It doesn’t kill these pests. It just makes them avoid treated plants.
Why is it better to use G4 formula than chemical pest control products?
Chemical pesticides, herbicides and fertilisers can be poisonous to people and animals and can cause a threat to food chains.
Is there anything else I can do to tackle this problem?
Sadly, no. There are no natural predators for red lily beetles, which makes it even more important to treat the plants with Grazers G4 before they’re attacked.
