Hi, I think u have got a pest, but it's difficult to find in daylight. I had one plant that was being munched, I couldn't see any pests, but eventually found a small caterpillar that was living inside of the hollow middle of the garden cane that was supporting the plant!

They hide everywhere... I hate them all!

Grasshoppers or..... the leaves of my fruit trees in pots were being devastated with holes. Finally found nightly Japanese beetles just stripping the leaves. I used orange oil, and they finally went away.

Yeah, something is eating your leaves.

When I see that, I spray my plants down with some sevin. It will kill any leaf munchers extra quick.

Edymnion....Have you had any luck with the liquid form? I'm having a time with brown marmorated stink bugs. I finally gave up and sprayed some liquid Sevins on my bhuts. The next day I walked out and saw a stink bug just sitting there laughing at me! They are eating the leaves and the pods. I try to smash every one I see, but it appears to be a losing battle.
