Sweet Corn Pest Attack

Anonymous added on June 9, 2013 | Answered

We planted sweet corn three weeks ago from seed. We are going organic, so we have only used natural pest control products. The plants are 5 to 6 inches tall. One week ago something took a bite out of one plant just above where the leaves begin to separate from the stalk. The plant fell over. Now four plants have been chomped on. There is no evidence of bugs or discoloration of the leaves or additional feeding spots. What is doing this, and what can I do to stop it?
