Lettuce Plants

Vegetable Plants Eaten

Anonymous added on April 27, 2011 | Answered

I have planted a garden this year and something is doing substantial damage to my plants. I had lettuce, squash, and now pepper plants, literally plucked off at the stems. I originally was thinking moles, as it almost looks like something has pulled the plant down from the bottom, and I do have some confirmed mole activity. I put two traps down and have not had any success. I do have a lot of squirrels. Is this what is doing it? No deer tracks, and the garden is closed (fenced off) so rabbits should be very unlikely. Any ideas?
