Ha, lily beetles were the subject of my MSc, and you know what? I never kept any of the little buggers!!! Sure you can mail me some.
I know they were part of you MSc, we talked about it once before....I even go searching for them in the soil in spring and find babies and squish 'em ....earlier this year I sent some Tiger Lily bulbils in the mail and one of the little buggars hopped a ride with the bulbils and arrived breathing, so you want them dead or alive
