Dahlia leaves being eaten

My dahlia leaves are being decimated! No slug slime, no evidence of any pest. Any ideas?

    Looks like slug/snail damage to me  :)

  • Umm, think you're probably right although no slime. Thanks for Yr help 😀

    Earwigs and caterpillars can also cause a lot of damage, but I doubt it's caterpillars, and earwigs mainly go for the flowers.  :)

  • Its slugs, they have got to mine too, and somehow manage not to leave slime
  • Mine are the same @BirdloopGW. Cant find any slugs though,Thinking I might not bother with Dahlias next year.
    The whole truth is an instrument that can only be played by an expert.
