|For the last 2 years, something has been eating the leaves of my pepper plants. I have tried Seven powder applied once a week and an insect spray but the leaves are still chewed. I have looked for aphids or any type of bug on both sides of the leaves but I haven't seen anything. It might be eating only at night. I tried putting slug bait sprinkled around each plant but that isn't it either.

|If you've tried Sevin and slug bait and still have problems, you may be dealing with caterpillars of some sort. Dipel or Thuricide targets only caterpillars so it might be worth a try. Wish I had more suggestions!
