i would like to know what is eating the leaves on a greenhouse cucumber.there is no evidence of a slug or snail,just holes in the leaves.i have looked on the underside of the leaves and nothing is to be seems that whatever it is comes out at night.



Try putting down some slug pellets - mine are being chomped by slugs or snails although I haven't seen them but I have seen the resultant slime trails after they've eaten the pellets.
