Would love a confirmation of what pest is causing this damage!
I recently planted some Zucchini plants, and instantly they were devastated by some sort of pest (there's no hope for them any longer I fear). At first I suspected snails, but after sprinking Sluggo around the plants, they still kept getting damaged. I also kept checking the plants at night, and there were no snails around them! I then treated them by spraying them with a garlic/onion/cayenne infusion (which I read repels a lot of pests) and the culprit was not deterred.
Before I plant more Zuchs, I just want to confirm what pest this is. Based on the damage, it looks to be slugs (even though no evidence of them present is found), but does anyone have any other ideas of what it may be? There are loads of Pincher Bugs and Pill Bugs around, but I've read that those are rarely the culprits.
