Avoiding lily beatles?
This is the year I am going to finally be able to build teh garden bed in from of my wrap around porch. The loam was brought in and spread in October and the beds were dug out by machine and loam brought in. I still need to work in compost and get gutters put up.
Since we don't have lilies (the garden I have put in doesn't have any) we don't have any lily beatles. I am hesitant to do anything that will bring them in because I don't have the patience to pick and DH just loves to get the sprayer out. If I buys bulbs only, no plants and no transplants, can I avoid the beatles? Or will they find me? We are on almost 4 acres and the neighbors to either side don't have lilies, the ones across the street do (maybe 400-500 feet away), but I don't know if they've had beatles or not.
What do you think? Also, your favorite, reputable sources are appreciated!
