Something is eating my plants!
Hello fellow gardenwebers,
This is my first season doing an organic vegetable garden and I am sick of different things eating my plants!
I overgoogled myself and tried many things. I spray neem oil regularly, I tried beer traps for slugs - non actually drown in there, copper tape - does not seem to work well, cinnamon - no difference, sugar newspapers - it only attracted ants! I am going to try garlic spray and then I am out of options. Please ID the bugs by the wholes they are making and advise on what I should be doing to save my garden.
what are these guys? These are the only bugs I see regularly
holes in eggplant
mint. these do not look like holes, more like a top layer was eaten, but a very thin film under the green part is still there
the same with purple basil
same with cucumbers
basil. this looks more like a slug to me.
tomatoes. who would eat a tomato leaf?
pumpkin again. Is it bugs or is it bacteria? earwigs? flea beetles?
some holes are holes, some have some kind of film left as I said, some look like a sunburn or bacteria. Please advise. Thanks!
