Something is eating the petals off of my daisies and cone flowers. All the petals are eaten right up to the center on each stem (and the center remains). Any idea on what could be doing this? I appreciate your feedback!July 18, 2010 at 2:27 am #29543 AnonymousSounds like it might be a caterpillar. Have you seen any of these? Helicoverpa zea, the corn earworm, feeds on flower petals as well as ears of corn (and cotton bolls).Author PostsViewing 2 posts - 1 through 2 (of 2 total)You must be logged in to reply to this topic.
