Hosta Lily leaves being eaten
I have hosta lilies. Something is eating the leaves, all of the leaves! Is it woodchucks? They've been here several years but haven't eaten them before. I've attached a photos of what they usually look like and what they look like now. Noticed scat this morning so will try to attach a picture of that too. Thank you for any help!
That looks like bunny or deer scat. Tender young leaves would seem to be more attractive than late season foliage. You can try repellents or a motion activated sprinkler. It takes a serious fence to keep out deer; 8 foot high is recommended or a double fence that is 4 ft high with a second 4 ft high fence 3-4 feet apart. (Deer don't have room to gather themselves and leap the second fence.) Rabbit fences must go down 9-12 inches to prevent them from digging under. Several links follow. The first is on rabbit fencing and the second is to a list of articles on deer.
