What is eating or making my Holy Hock leaves look like lace. I was told it was earwigs but have not found any on or around the plant. What do I do. The plant is flowering and other than the leaves is very healthy.

A few pests can cause this damage.

Neem Oil is a great treatment for most sucking pests. Neem Oil is organic and safe for people, pets and Bees.
