Greenhouse nibblers!

I am a very new gardener and beginning to grow things in my greenhouse.

I have noticed that something is eating my tomatoes, peppers and chillies and despite spraying them with some organic stuff I got from the internet - it seems to still be doing it.

There are some pretty big spiders running around in the compost - could it be them??

Thanks in advance for any advice.

    Could be mice too - they are my biggest GH pestimage

    Not a greenhouse nibbler but what is nibbling my potting shed.

    I had the tops nipped-off of about half my toms and pepper seedlings last year - by mice! image

    A trowel in the hand is worth a thousand lost under a bush.

    Thanks Edd, thought it was, keep the bird food in there, perhaps there after it.
