What is eating my Brugs?

Posted by skowl 7a (My Page) on

I am new to growing Brugs this year - and something is really chomping down on them. There are white spots (sacs?) on the bottom of the leaves.

Is this spider mites, or something else? I've been treating with an insect- killer spray more or less daily, and trying to keep them wet, but it doesn't seem to do anything.

Thanks so much for any help.

It's hard to say from the photo. A photo of the bottom of the leaf might be helpful.

If it is spider mites, you'll see hundreds/thousands of them under the leaf or at the end of young leaves.

It could also be slugs which love the leaves, at least here in my garden.
