somrthing killing lilies

I am finding some of my lilies laying down in the bed. The base appears to have been chewed and essentially chopped down. Some that I attempted to straighten have broken off at the base. I suspected squirrels or chipmunks (they are abundant)but when I scratched around the soil at the base of a plant, I saw a very tiny white bug...there were a number of them. Does anyone know what they are and if they are the culprit of my troubles. I am trying to correct this before it gets out of hand.

If it was white, C shaped, it could be weevil larvae.
