Q.

parsley and basil

Anonymous added on July 8, 2015 | Answered

My parsley and basil plants in different containers are having the leaves completely eaten. Sometimes it appears as if tiny bites are taken around the edges. It doesn't appear to be the tiny round holes of the flea beetle. My backyard is completely fenced in.

Slugs are the normal culprit for this. They can literally devour plants overnight and they love basil. This article will help: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/plant-problems/pests/facts-about-slugs-and-how-to-kill-garden-slugs.htm
