Something is eating my butterfly bushes this year .
The leaves are chomped on the top as well as the bottom.
Last year nothing ate this plant.
It also seems whatever it is perfers the green variety over the silver leaved ones.
Anyone have a clue?
They most definitely come out at nite because I see nothing in the day .
Do earwigs like this plant as well as the many others they are munching on in my garden ?
