Description

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.

You can read more about this on the RHS website.

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.

Does Chimney Sheep sell any other natural pest control products?

Yes. We stock natural moth repellents and repellents that are effective against other insects that are harmful to health, such as ticks, midges and mosquitoes. We also have products that deter pigeons, deer, rabbits and other little creatures. Here’s our full range.

    So far so good!

    Seems to have discouraged the Lilly beetles from settling in the plants. Have to apply it regularly particularly after rain.

    ZAP! Lily Beetle...fast and effectively.

    Excellent product. Wish I had bought it before my lillies were infested with lily beetle as it recommends to treat prophylactically, which I didn’t know til I read it on the bottle. Very simple to us, effective and sprays upside down for ease and convenience. Lily beetle’s gone after first treatment. Does not kill the beetle, so “pest-friendly”, as it just removes tgem and puts them off coming back. Would buy again.

    Lily beetle deterrent really works

    I’ve waited a few weeks before writing a review but I can now confirm this really works. I had lily beetles and the spray, which is safe for other insects and animals clearly stopped them from eating the leaves and buds because I’ve now got lots of beautiful lily flowers. You need to check your plants every week or so and need to spray as soon as you see a red lily beetle (usually about 10-14 days after the previous spray).

    It's not perfect, but it's significantly better than nothing!

    I grow a lot of lilies, usually between 20 and 40 in a season, I love them, the flowers are beautiful and the scent is divine. However the little red devils love them too and have been known to strip my plants. I am not one for being out daily picking them off, but since using this I’ve seen a dramatic decrease in the number of Lily bugs on my plants, from regularly finding 5-10 a day, I’m unlucky now if I find 1 or 2.

    It’s not perfect and if you read it, it’s not a pesticide, it’s not for killing the bugs, it’s a deterrent, making the plants less desirable to the bugs. It’s also organic and a booster for the plants, mine are looking strong and healthy in 2020, so long may it continue.

    It works!

    I didn’t know what Lily Beetles were. I did note however that my four lily plants in a tub were being shredded to pieces by something. When I looked closely I saw two bright red beetles under the leaves busy copulating, with a number of others close by and obviously awaiting their turns. A quick Google search identified these as the dreaded lily beetle.
    As life seems so fragile at the moment I didn’t really want to kill them, so an Amazon search revealed Grazers natural lily beetle repellent. I was sceptical, but I have sprayed the plants liberally, and the next day the beetles had gone and so far have not returned (5 days later now). The plants are already growing much more strongly.
    I wondered how a simple chemical like calcium chloride (which is what Grazers contains) could give this effect.
    However a quick internet search reveals that plants which are naturally resistant to aphids tend to have high levels of chloride in their leaves. Also chloride has some kind of involvement in the salivary system of insects. Therefore Grazers seems to work by making the leaves unattractive for these blighters to eat.
    I’m happy, but I suppose someone else’s lilies are now being munched. Sorry to whoever that person is!
