Rhubarb leaves being eaten

Rhubarb leaves being eaten

Having problems with the rhubarb this year as you can see it is being eaten by something but it is not slugs or snails and underneath them there is nothing there either could you any have suggestion as to what it might be. regards b bibi2591, Ballyboughal, Co Dublin Posted: 19/04/2017

It is not snails .... the main damage was done while the leaves were in bud, probably cutworms or possible grub larvae of a beetle species.

It is likely to be a once once ... feed the plant to help it recover and grow.
