Hyacinth Bean Vine


Anonymous added on June 7, 2015 | Answered

Something is eating the leaves of my newly planted Hyacinth Bean Vine down to skeletons in the past two mornings. It's happening at night. I've checked several times throughout the day and there is nothing on them. There are marigolds planted near them and they are being eaten also. They are planted in a flower box raised two foot off the ground. There is Stevia, Summer Savory, and Lime Basil planted in the bed as well and they are untouched. I have searched for slug trails but found no trace of them. I cannot figure out what is eating them. I am at a loss as to what to do! Please help!!!

IT could still be slugs, or even snails, though it's unusual that they haven't went after your basil - this being a favorite. Should slugs/snails be the issue, these articles will help: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/plant-problems/pests/facts-about-slugs-and-how-to-kill-garden-slugs.htm

If they appear to be cut, rather than chewed on, it could be cutworms. They also generally feed at night. Here is more information: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/plant-problems/pests/insects/get-rid-cutworms.htm
