Hosta Problem

Anonymous added on May 10, 2014 | Answered

We are seeing our Hostas drop leaves and stalks from ground level. All pots are copper banded to prevent slugs. When the leaves drop, they look perfect but the leaf stem seems to have been nibbled at soil level. What is it that's chewing my hostas and is there anything I can do to prevent this happening?
