Little critter...

So happy to see a new forum for our lovely Heuchera!!

I am just learning about hosta, and just love them, so when a friend at the nursery asked if I liked these. I was skeptical until I saw how beautiful they are and how well they compliment my hosta.

I have to get some pics done to show, but so far I have:

2 - Pinot Gris
2 - Crimson Curls
Caramel
Key Lime Pie
Fire Chief

I really like them all!! I do however have a pest problem. I saw today that one of my Pinot Gris has some chew marks, so I just went out in the dark to see who the culprit might be...here he is:

Photobucket

Photobucket

I know it is hard to see, he is very small. Can anyone tell what it might be, and if it is truly eating my beauties. I took care of it, of course, but it may have friends and I need to know if I should start a pest extraction routine:)

Thanks all,

Gabby

Gabby,
It is really hard to see...
Could be a sawfly. Google pictures and compare with your larvae.
Good luck!

Gabby, I meant google 'sawfly'. Or, read the article (follow the link I included into my previous post).

Thanks- I did look at your link. It did not have the same head. It was more like a plain green caterpillar, but very tiny. Like a cabbage worm.

I am sure I can find something to send them on their way.

Last year I found a great remedy for my cabbage worms - you put tin foil in the beds with sliced cucumber laid on the foil. It works extremely well. I was amazed. Maybe I will try that-;)

If you will be able to make a better picture, you can post it on 'Pests & Diseases' forum. People are very knowledgeable there :)
