More damage this morning. This is something that damages not only what's in the bed but also on a 2.5 foot high table that's over a foot away from the bed.
It tore off a sunflower stem. Usually the slugs will eat the leaves, not just topple. Could consider a cutworm, but it has a collar, and this is the only thing toppled. I've also dug around these plants and never found anything.
It also ate the remains of another sunflower.
It pulled up garlic bulbs (two), and also didn't seem deterred by all of the diced garlic I put around the bed. It hasn't found or bothered with the one between the sweet corn yet.
It then jumped or crawled up onto the high table and went through a small pot of emerging petunias, and ate two baby sunflower seedlings I was growing to replace the ones the slugs destroyed (not pictured).
I'm bummed! Whatever it is doesn't seem to bother the onions, chives or thyme, clearly. Nor the tomatoes - it doesn't touch any of the tomato plants and I have over 10 of them! So far it hasn't bothered cucumbers or squash.
I didn't want to only grow herbs. I'm sad thinking I may not be able to control whatever this is.
