What's eating my Potato leaves?

Post  Shandrac on 5/4/2013, 4:07 pm

My potato leavess get shredded every year by some mysterious bug with a hearty appetite. When I look in the garden, I see earwigs, rolly-polly bugs, slugs/snails. No aphids this year thanks to a weekly application of Neem oil/Insecticidal soap spray and I'm using Sluggo-Plus (to rid of snails and ear wigs).
Any ideas what is eating the leaves/remedies to control that critter?

No, I haven't seen anything like that in my garden. I'm in the garden daily and went out at night with a flashlight. I've not even seen grass hoppers.

Gotcha!
Checked out the post, ID'd flea beetles and little cut worms! AHA!
I see Carbaryl is listed as a pesticide to both. Is this an organic application or is there an organic alternative?
THANKS!!

For details about the insecticides that are listed or the ones that are organic or effective check out the links in the Stickies in the 'Pests' sub-forum.
http://squarefoot.creatingforum.com/f52-pests

With all insecticides. READ AND FOLLOW ALL LABEL DIRECTIONS! ! ! ! ! Pay particular attention to any mention of bees on the label.
