Skeletonizing Huge Sunflowers

Zone 10a | Anonymous added on June 15, 2014 | Answered

The leaves of every single one of my huge sunflowers are getting skeletonized by something. Night feeding, have tried Eight, Safer Soap, ready to rip them out I'm just so frustrated. Willing to do something systemic as long as it does not harm honeybees. Please, no obvious answers, addressed all those long ago. This pest is elusive and challenging.
