What is eating my peppers and marigolds?
I planted four different types of pepper plants in my vegetable garden and overnight they were stripped bare the stalk. Okra seedlings in the same garden have been eaten up, but the tomatoes, squash, and cucumbers have not been bothered. There is a series of shiny, webbish lines on the soil around the base of the plants after they've been stripped. Apparently, the same pest chewed up my marigolds in another garden bed because the same webby stuff is on the soil around those stripped stalks.
Any idea what this is, and how to get rid of it? I'm looking forward to getting some more peppers planted but I don't want to just keep feeding this thing!
