Q.

Eggplant leaves

Zone 08035 | Anita Coryell added on July 30, 2017 | Answered

Something is eating my eggplant leaves but it is not the beetle, as the leaves do not have little holes. Instead, the entire leaf is being eaten, leaving part of it missing. This is happening to a few other plants as well. Any ideas?

This sounds like the work of caterpillars or even slugs or snails. The following articles should help with these pests and for any other possible culprits, you could try neem oil.
