Carrots
Q.

What could be eating new carrot sprouts?

Zone Nova Scotia 5b | dfeltmate added on June 23, 2015 | Answered

Each day more are gone. I thought mites, so sprayed with dish soap and water and the next day all sprouts were gone. Now noticing cucumber and pea sprouts are disappearing. Doesn't appear to be slugs. I tilled the row last evening looking for predators but didn't find anything suspicious. Any suggestions and advice would be greatly appreciated!

Rabbits will nibble down entire rows of tender vegetable sprouts.

Slugs would not be effected by insecticidal soap, so you may have a slug issue.
