I was reading about worms on some of peoples asparagus plants and how different folks go about trimming them etc etc. Well I had never seen any worms but when I took the dog out tonight in the mostly dark yard, we walked by the saparagus which is about 5.5 feet tall now...only about 3 plants left out of many I had planted..and still no asparagaus after threer years...none to speak of that is..but I did find many oval orange bugs. They aer kind of like the ones that eat my lilys, the awful ratheads!!! I detest those things.
I have no idea what they are and if anyone else has seen them in this area. I;m on the northshore on MAssachusettes fairly cloes to the ocean but not on it...maybe 5 mins away. Are they a usual occurance and can yo get rid of them organically? Easily? permanently? LOL Actually any info would be of help. Thakns much in advance.
I wonder if they are realted to the beetles on the lily plants which came back for a second feasting this summer..they aer a bit larger nd redder but these orange things look like beetles as well..I got threer or four in a kleenex I had with me and tossed them in the barrel. I think I squished them first. Hope that was ok. Boy the moer I grow the more bugs I find of all kinds!! Cher
