What Is Nibbling My Young Gardenia Leaves

jimco added on October 25, 2011 | Answered

The young leaves are being nibbled at the edges as they appear. I have tried the usual insecticides and snail bait to no avail. I have inspected the plant at night and have seen nothing. Can you advise please?

It could be a wide variety of things, but as you have checked for snails and slugs and have tried insecticide, I would hazard the guess that it may be small rodents, like mice or voles. This article may help:
