Answer: Are you sure the critter isn't a neighbor who is fond of your wildflowers? Only kidding. If the plants attacked are along the edge of your garden, the pest is most likely a deer. Have you seen footprints? If not, I honestly can't imagine what would behave this way...aside from a mischeivous human. If the wildflowers aren't very tall, then the pest might also be a woodchuck. Try dusting the ground around these flowers with flour, which will capture footprints as evidence. You can also spray your flowers with a mixture of hot sauce and water, with a small drop of dish soap as a sticking agent, and spray this on your flowers to see if this deters future feeding. Best of luck!
