something eating cilantro seedling roots

Zone zone 8, coastal NC | pokey added on June 2, 2014 | Answered

I am growing cilantro from seed in my garden. The seedlings are just a couple inches tall with a couple pairs of true leaves. However, each morning one or two of them have been laying dead wilted on the soil. Once I pull the seedling up, what little root it had appears to have been eaten. Any suggestions on where to start looking for the cause?

Thank you for this! Looks to be right on after reading through the article. Only if gmail didn't mark it as spam so I would have seen it sooner :)
