How to Stop Pests Eating New Passionfruit Leaves ?

Kevin Bennett added on December 5, 2010 | Answered

I have 2 new passionfruit vines and both are under attack from pests that are not visible. The new leaves are being eaten, and now the older leaves are also showing results of something chewing away at them. Without being able to identify the pest, is there a home made non-toxic spray that might protect the plants from total eradication ?

If you are seeing night time damage with no visible pest, it is typically slugs or snails. They do like new growth best and will move on to older growth when new growth is gone. These articles will help you:
