What’s Eating Annuals


newbee gardener added on July 14, 2011 | Answered

What could be eating my annuals when I don't see any bugs/worms/etc? Something is chewing up my annuals in my front flower bed. Marigolds have the leaves chewed up. Allysum have yet to bloom and are quite stunted. I can't see any bugs around. There are tiny white dots here and there and eventually there's a hole in the leaf. There are a few tiny ants crawling around.

Please check this url for more detailed information for what appears to be insect pests (you cannot always see them with the naked eye, btw) But they can be controlled.
