Q.datura pests

Zone 48060 Parga Greece | garnet_thomas added on March 6, 2018 | Answered

I live in Greece and have several Daturas growing quite happily and flower most of the year. The problem is that something is eating the leaves but I never actually see anything on them! I suspect nocturnal snails but never see any! I have sprayed with pesticide but it seems to be non-effective.

Any advice please

You might have root weevils. Read about them here: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/plant-problems/pests/insects/controlling-root-weevil.htm. Another possibility is tomato hornworm which is active during daylight but hard to find due to camouflage.
