The Q&A Archives: Bougainville

Question: I have something eating the leaves off all my Bougainville's what can I do to stop this? I'm not sure if there are slugs or not.
Thank you

Answer: MaryAnn,

What you do about it depends on who the culprit is. Slugs and snails leave shiny dried slime trails. Check the plant to try and catch the culprits. This may mean going outside with a flashlight at night as some are nocturnal. When you know "who done it" send us another question and we can prescribe an appropriate, environmentally safe control option. Good luck in the hunt!

Thanks for the question. Please stop in again soon!
