Karen,

I am sorry for this delayed reply to your gardening question. The spring rush has brought a deluge of questions and we are working hard to catch up!

If the insects are moths they are not likely eating the leaves as their mouthparts cannot chew. It may be some other insect. You can either ignore it and expect it to go away or treat with a general pesticide and see if it stops the damage.

Thanks for the question. Best wishes for a wonderful gardening season. Please stop in again soon!
