Something has been nibbling on my unknown & Dr Ruppel Clematis in the new garden bed. Anyone have any ideas what kind of pest could be making these unsightly bite marks all over the leaves of my climbers? Hope they don’t start on the large unopened flower buds as dessert afterwards! I’ve never had any problems with pests on my Clematis foliage in the past so your guess is as good as mine what could be causing this damage. I didn’t see any signs of insects nearby. Spraying isn’t something I do in my garden since I want to attract beneficial insects and keep my family & pets safe. So I may have to just wait and let nature run it’s course. However I could try a homemade remedy like dishsoap & water once the weather clears up. Wish me luck! 🙂
UPDATE: I went out last night like some of you recommended and it was Earwigs as Balisha suggested. I caught one of the little buggers in the act!!!! Thanks for all your suggestions & help.
