What's eating my pepper seedlings? :-(
Friday, 16 Mar 12 Rainy 13°C / 55°F
Hrmph. Something is eating my pepper seedlings.
This is somewhat peculiar because they’re planted in a fresh, clean seed & cutting compost that looks to have been sterilised; the problem has only occurred since I moved them from the front of the property to the back (still indoors) and took the lid off the propagator to let the (then) two seedlings harden off.
That was yesterday. Today, the only decent seedling is (thankfully) untouched, but there are two new seedlings that have been eaten. Munched. Chomped. Devoured. You may be getting the idea that I am not delighted.
So, what’s the culprit? There are no slug/snail trails on the surface of the compost or the surrounding area. There is no evidence of mice. I did evict a woodlouse from the tray the other day… do they eat peppers? Should I be blaming the local arachnids? I’m confused…
