Any thought on how to reduce these critters.
I've had Hostas for 30+ years with no problems, last year had a Blueberry Muffin virtually wiped out, this year I've noticed 4 more affected.
Any and all ideas would be appreciated, I've set traps with not much luck. We have a family of foxes in the neighborhood, but not sure they get this far, no feral cats in the area.
Thx

I see you have tried traps but we found that the traps plus wire baskets are how to stop them. However, we haven't used baskets with hostas just only with irises. Not exactly sure you can totally get rid of them unless you change the conditions that they like.
