Something eating buds off plants

Bessboro(Z4 NY)May 30, 2004

I have something nipping the buds off my impatens. Thought maybe a chipmunk but no takers in a hav a hart trap. Anyone got any ideas what could be doing this and also will new buds develop on the plants? Thanks

Don't know who the culprit may be, but you will certainly have new buds. Impatiens continue to produce buds throughout the growing season.

I finally figured out the culpert--- it is a rabbit I caught him in the act. I've started using a repellant and miracle grow and hopefully things are starting to turn around as I am seeing new buds forming. I also had to cut some of the old stems back as they were so badly damaged.
