RE: hole being ate in leaves

Usually if the hole is smack in the middle of the leaf, it's a slug. I used Corry's Slug and Snail bait to get rid of slugs that were chomping my Dahlias. They can get way up high if they're little critters. If it's being eaten from the outside edge in, it's probably a caterpillar.

I'm not sure what those little green guys are, but I just started spraying my hibs and dahlias with a miticide for spider mites called "Safer". It's too soon for results, but I'll let you know how it works. :)
