Sep 26, 2020 | Pests & Beneficials

When I stepped into the garden, I was expecting to find a nice big zucchini for a zucchini steak but alas, I only found part of a zucchini, bites out of two others, and half zucchini for the forth.  I suspected snails as it seems have many more snails than slugs.  But this morning, the whole and lovely ripening tomatoes that I had picked and left outside, had been partially eaten, and I’m now suspecting rats.  The tomatoes were on a chair, which slugs could climb in one night but the rat is a strong contender for blame.  A discerning rat it seems, since it picked the ripest tomato to eat in the bowl to eat!! Update: After picking the tomatoes, the next day I turned it over and there was the culprit; Slug. Not appetizing.
