I have several plants that are being munched on....newly planted hollyhock, beebalm, chrysanthemum, moonflower vine, morning glory, squash, okra, even my angel trumpets! Maybe the bugs will die after they eat my angel trumpet leaves? The hollyhock and beebalm look like victims of Japanese beatles leaving the leaf skeleton like, but the rest of the plants just look like a couple of bites taken out here and there, spine and all. The thing is, I have not seen any Jap beatles! or any other bugs besides those dang mud wasps. Should I spray an insecticide? And if so, will it be safe to use on the okra (there is no okras forming yet, just leaves)?* My rose of sharons, ivy, elephant ears, golden chain tree, hosta, grannys bonnet, solomons seal, stonecrop, daylillies, tomato plants..*all seem to be untouched. This list just includes the stuff I have planted this year, have not taken inventory of all the existing trees and plants. Actually, the oakleaf hydrangea and fringetree?(grandfather's beard) look okay too.
Thanks in advance for any help
