I live in hot Southern California and have an amended clay soil garden. I'm a novice gardener, but I've done some research and am trying some companion gardening to keep my little garden happy.
Last night I checked my Zucchini sprouts and they were perfect. Then this morning, this. I don't know if the pictures posted, but they have severe buggie gnawing around the edges and some worked in spots. They also have black stuff left on them (bug poo?). I have been looking around the garden and under the zucchini, but I can't find any culprits :/
I would appreciate ideas of what this may be and how to control said pest.
Thank you so much.
