What Causes Holes in Middle Leaves of a Basil Plant


Anonymous added on June 29, 2011 | Answered

There are holes in the center of the leaves on my basil plant. Is there a pest that eats the middle of a plant, and what do you do to rid them? Is this caused by something other than bugs?

This is most likely slug damage as basil is one of their favorite plants. This article will help: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/plant-problems/pests/facts-about-slugs-and-how-to-kill-garden-slugs.htm

It could also be flea beetles. Here is more information:
