What is eating my aralia sun king

Asked September 24, 2017, 1:02 PM EDT

I have 3 newly planted aralia sun king plants. I picked them because they are resistant to pests but something is eating holes in the leaves. I can't see anything on the leaves and Bonide insect spray is not working. Ideas?? Could it be slugs?

I am guessing it could be slugs. You could try checking by putting down a wet board and leaving it overnight. Turn it over in the morning to see if you can find any slugs. The plant profile does state it is prone to slugs. http://www.missouribotanicalgarden.org/PlantFinder/PlantFinderDetails.aspx?taxonid=274056

Thanks but if it is slugs how do I get rid of those?
