Chilli plant attack

Postby Joeyy » Wed Nov 09, 2005 8:56 pm


I have planted a chilli plant and it appears as though something is eating the leaves. I have put snail bait around the plant but it is still being attacked ? Am i missing something. Its a Habenero chilli plant if that makes a difference ?

Have you checked the leaves for eggs? Could be caterpillars or even beetles, there seem to be a lot of beetles around this year. You could try a Pyrethrum spray and see if this works
