The Q&A Archives: holes,holes,and more holes

Question: my flower gaeden started out great,and all of a sudden every thing started looking like swiss cheese.All the leafs are being eaten alive. I dont see any pest but I spray with seven pest control and the holes just get bigger. Im discourged. I just want to cut everything down it looks so bad. Help!!!!

Answer: It's hard to suggest a control remedy without knowing what the pest is. Since you've already used Sevin, which is fatal to most insects, I wonder if the culprits are slugs and snails? You can broadcast a bait such as Sluggo in your flower bed. It's iron based and any product not consumed will degrade into simple iron, which is helpful to the soil. I think it's worth a try!
