hole being ate in leaves

Deb1658(5a Iowa)July 23, 2005

Hi i have 5 Hibiscus plants they are located is different area of our land But i have three of then that are the red color ones and something is eatting holes in the leaves i looked under the leaves. I have seen what i think to be spidlers little lite green ones what are they and what can i do to get rid of them? before it is to late.

Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo

Usually if the hole is smack in the middle of the leaf, it's a slug. I used Corry's Slug and Snail bait to get rid of slugs that were chomping my Dahlias. They can get way up high if they're little critters. If it's being eaten from the outside edge in, it's probably a caterpillar.

I'm not sure what those little green guys are, but I just started spraying my hibs and dahlias with a miticide for spider mites called "Safer". It's too soon for results, but I'll let you know how it works. :)
