bamboo and rodent hole
I cleared a large area by the treeline, mostly of poision ivy. I sprayed roundup then pulled the vines, and of course not wearing enough protection for my wrists, ankles, face waist etc. I then raked away the leaf litter and moved a pile of big sandstone rocks back 10 feet and stacked them in a low wall and then planted 4 one gallon Sasa Oshidensis bamboo. Theyve already sent up several shoots.
Last week i found the leaves on one of my small bamboo plants covered with slugs, 2 large slugs and a dozen teeny ones. I picked and killed them then several more the next night and threw down som bug getta granuals.
Today i saw some kids run between the plants stand on the stone wall then run around and chase each other. I checked and one of the plants had a few small shoots crushed.Ugh!!
While inspecting that plant i found a clean, deep, 1" diamter hole right on the other side of that plant.
In previus years ive seen chipmunks running threw the yard, I dont remember ever seing any other non-squirrel rodents around so a chipmunk would be my first guess.
Will it damage my bamboo? If it will what should i do?
I live in CT
