This bacteria makes a toxin poison that can cause a red rash on the skin. Scarlet fever is most common in children between 5 and 15 years of age. Your child may return to school 24 hours after he begins antibiotic medicine and when his fever has been gone for a day.

Oriental, rubrum, tiger and trumpet lilies as well as Oriental trumpets orienpets and Turk's cap lilies and native North American lily species are all vulnerable, but the beetle prefers some types more than others.

Research at the University of Maine shows that Asiatic lilies are the most vulnerable, while some Oriental lilies are more resistant. The beetles may also be having an impact on populations of native Canada lily Lilium canadense , as well as other rare and endangered lily species found in northeastern North America.
The adults also eat the leaves of some other garden plants, including lily-of-the-valley Convallaria majalis , Solomon's seal Polygonatum , potato Solanum tuberosum , flowering tobacco Nicotiana , hollyhock Alcea and hosta. A chewed and defoliated lily plant may be your first indication that this pest has arrived in your garden.
Both the adult and juvenile phases are voracious feeders and they can do a lot of damage in a very short time. Examine your lilies carefully several times a week, beginning as soon as the plants emerge from the ground. Adult beetles overwinter in the soil or in plant debris, and will begin laying their eggs early in the growing season, often starting on spring-blooming fritillaria that emerge with the daffodils. Each female lays up to eggs, which hatch in one to two weeks.
To prevent severe damage, it's important to curb the insect's reproductive cycle early in the season. The adult lily leaf beetle is scarlet red on top and black underneath. It's just under a half-inch long and has an elongated body with relatively long legs and long antennae. Though these adults do feed on the foliage, their primary concern is to reproduce. If you see the adult beetles, it is very likely that you'll also be able to find egg masses on the undersides of the leaves. The red-orange to brown eggs are tiny and laid in narrow, irregular rows.
The lily leaf beetle larvae, or grubs, cause the most damage. Hundreds of larvae may hatch at one time, and they begin eating immediately. Though the leaves are their preferred food, they will also devour buds, flowers and stems. Most feeding takes place under the leaves or at leaf nodes along the stem.
The larvae are yellow, brown or orange and would be relatively easy to spot if they didn't have such an effective and disgusting way of disguising themselves: As the larvae eat, they pile their excrement on top of themselves. This makes the larvae difficult to see look for soft, brown masses , difficult to destroy squishing the mass doesn't necessarily kill the larvae and very unpleasant to touch some gardeners wear latex or nitrile gloves.

The larvae typically feed for 16 to 24 days and then enter the soil to pupate. Adult beetles will emerge 16 to 22 days later and continue feeding until fall. Biological control using natural lily leaf beetle predators shows the most promise for controlling the spread of this invasive scourge. Although the beetle has no natural predators in North America, the University of Rhode Island Biological Control Laboratory, in collaboration with CABI-Bioscience and colleagues in France, has identified several European insects that parasitize the lily leaf beetle grubs.
The ant-sized parasitic wasps lay eggs on the beetle grubs, which subsequently hatch and kill their host. These insects have been released at research sites in all New England states and are proving effective at decreasing the lily leaf beetle populations for at least several miles in the surrounding areas.

These controls are not yet commercially available for gardeners, but show long-term promise. See the reference section for links to more information. For now, gardeners have a few options for dealing with this destructive pest. Hand-picking the adult beetles is very effective if you have only a few lily plants.
