Basil Pest

Anonymous added on May 13, 2011 | Answered

Have new Basil (still in store pots) that have been on my patio for about two weeks here in Memphis, TN. When I started to plant in larger pot today, I noticed many leaves partially eaten. What might I do to rid the pest and still eat the Basil in the future?
