I have a bug eating my mint but I can’t seem to find it, I have sprayed it with confidor but its not working, please help?
huge chunks of the leaves are missing, I think maybe it is a slug or something but I haven't found any in the leaves or the planter box. This is my second attempt at mint because the first lot was completely destroyed by the mystery bug. I have successfully grown coriander, parsley, chives, rosemary, thyme, oregano and sage but my mint keeps getting eaten. Any advice would be greatly appreciated

It's quite possible a slug or snail issue, but they usually feed at night and harbor in out of the way places during daylight hours do you may not see them.
Confidor is an insecticide primarily for sucking insect pests and won't have any control effects on snails or slugs.
