Who is Eating my Bamboo Shoots?
I get Phyllostachys sp. that have started to sprout new shoots. But I see the tips of the new growth were eaten by somebody. I'm just curious as to who did that.
At our site, we have various creatures, such as deers, short-tailed rabbits, squirrels, mice, fox (we need more of them), and even ground hogs.
I have since put hay mulch around the new shoots and this has worked well. Now the new shoots are about 2-3" tall and no new damages.
