This has definitely been the year of the bug. From trees, evergreens, perennials, veggies - everything has been munched on. There's nothing more disheartening than watching it happen.

Here are some samples in my tiny backyard. Leaves are bearing the marks of swiss cheese.

Culprits: slugs, earwigs, pill bugs and leaf cutter bee. Toss in a caterpillar or two, and that sums up the damage.
I've managed to control a lot worse damage by removing slugs in the evening, watering in the morning hours and keeping a close eye. But to no avail, I still have to live with the damage.
The woes of a gardener, eh? Happening to you too?
