Pests attacking my Winter Squash and Onions

TucsonGardenerJune 3, 2011

If anyone could please help! I have been discovering that my runners on my winter squash have been eaten off, as well as the green growth on my onions and elephant garlic. Also, whatever is here has attached my eggplants. What is weird is that it is only in certain gardens (I have several around my yard) and not all parts of the yard. What would it be and how is the best to get rid of these pests without hurting the plants and, if possible, not killing the animals.

Thanks!!

Could be a number of things. Are they hopping over your fencing, or digging under? What evidence have you found for the critters so you can take action?
