Q.Some Insect Is Eating The Flowers On All My Coneflowers At A Rapid Pace!

Zone 02061 | kaytoma added on July 15, 2020 | Answered

I don’t really see any insects although there may some very small black insect that I noticed when I cut a few to bring in the house. Whatever is doing it, they are in the process of destroying every flower. There are a few holes in the lower leaves but nothing compared to the actual flower. Thank you in advance for any assistance you may have for me! Kay Toma
