Q.Problem With Hostas

Anonymous added on September 11, 2011 | Answered

Something is eating my hostas from underground. I notice that some of the leaves are chewed through at ground level and when I look closer and dig the plant up, it has been chewed on and there is very little of the plant left. Is this voles?

The pests would be voles, mice or even squirrels or chipmunks. If you see damage to the roots or find burrows, you will need to take steps to get rid of these pests.
