What ate my millkweeds?
A month or two ago, while making my garden rounds, I found that all the leaves of my then largest milkweed plant had been chopped away and eaten. No cattapillars of any kind, no beetles, no bugs. Looks like something bit each leaf off at the stem.
Then I sprayed that stinky mammal-be-gone spray, the type that smells like rotten eggs, skunk etc.
I came back from a vacation last night to find that all my half dozen milkweeds have been stripped of leaves. Do I have a rabid animal on my property eating the posisonous stuff? Or are there any foragers that can clearcut milkweed leaves.
Thanks for your input.
