Does anyone know anything about a grub that is black with yellow stripes that is eating our lillies and what to use to get rid of them

Answer: Dear Brooke,
The black and yellow caterpillar that is attacting your lillies is called the Lily Caterpillar. They chew away the leaf surfaces and disfigure the plants they feed on.

The products that will control this caterpillar is Nature’s Way Caterpillar Killer, Dipel, or Success Insect Control. These caterpillars can do a lot of damage in a short period of time, so best to use either of these product as quickly as you can.
