Can Someone Identify Whats Eating My Dahlias?
I am hoping that someone will be able to help me. Some type of insect is eating my dahlias. Either the edges of the leaves have turned black or the leaves are eaten off completely. Also the new growth at the tops of the plants are being eaten too. I have not seen any kind of insect although I have looked several times both on the stem and under the leaves. I have been spraying with Malathion?sp but whatever it is must love it and just keeps on eating. Out of 15 plants only one has blooms on it and it seems to be the only one this pest doesn't like to eat! Any help would be greatly appreciated. I would attach a photo but I don't see where I can do that.
