Something is eating my basil and I’m not sure what it is. I put copper around my basil to prevent slugs but but still it’s getting eaten. Can you please help me?

There is still a possibility that the slugs are still getting to it. You may want to set out a small pan of beer inside the copper barrier to test whether it is slugs or not.

It could be rodents as well. What does the damage look like?
