What is Eating My Garden?

There is nothing more aggravating after months of nurturing and cultivating your garden than having animals and pests nibble away at the fruits of your labor. Many of these critters that find your garden so appealing are clever and find new and inventive ways to access your garden area. You may be wondering who the culprit or culprits are that are eating your garden. Here is the lineup of potential offenders:

 

  • Leaf Eaters – There are a number of leaf eaters that could be damaging the greenery of your plantings and gardens. From beetles to caterpillars to scale insects, leaf eaters tend to be pests that chew holes in the leaves and greenery of your plantings. Depending upon the type of damage, professional lawn care experts, like our team at Pro-Tech Lawn Care, can examine the evidence and decide on a course of treatment.

 

  • Wildlife – Rabbits, deer, and other wildlife love to nibble on the vegetables in your garden. If you notice digging, teeth marks on veggies, or holes in your fencing, you may have an animal wreaking havoc on your garden. Repair the fencing to protect the garden area and attempt to figure out what type of animal is getting at your veggies. If you need help, it may be best to call in the experts.

 

  • Root Feeders – Dead roots, holes in the ground, and dead plantings could be the sign of root feeders like grubs, moles, groundhogs, and other ground dwelling insects.
