Runner Beans Being Eaten

Posted: 13/06/2014 at 17:29

This happened last year. I have put them in a different place this year and the same happens.

They are being eaten overnight with just the stems remaining.

I have tried plastic cloches/sharp sand/grit/egg shells &, pellets.

Are these SAS snails ?

Would growing under plastic sheeting help??

OK 73 Days have past and I dug up a plant today. They look marvelous. Slightly larger than an egg.

Just dug up 2 more plants!

Maybe they have advanced because I grew them under black plastic ??

Do these creatures munch on other veg as I have many things close by...?

To be honest, regards my problem I just can't see it being economically viable

spending £15 for a pack of nematodes just for one bush.

 

If, I dug the bush up and replanted elsewhere and covered with a net wouldn't this

do?

In 2011/12 the bush had no protection and wasn't attacked.

My problem is, that I cannot get to the allotment everyday. The damage shown was done in one day!

I have probably over panicked as, I have pulled all the fruit off even though it's still not ripe.

 I thought if I'm not having it neither are them little bleeders!

I can do something with it I'm sure.

This is the second year running that my gooseberry bush is slowly being stripped clean of everything.

It has a plague of tiny caterpillars munching away.

I put the net on too late this year and last year I didn't use one at all.

 

How do I get rid of them?

 

Thanks
