Clematis flowers being eaten

we have a very healthy clematis plant which is full of buds but as the flowers open they are being eaten by something. Any ideas

  • Thanks for all your responses. Seems like you are all agreed. I will keep a lookout for the blight era.

  • Roll up some newspaper, thoroughly soak it, then place it like a collar round the affected plants.

    In the morning shake out...............the earwigs.
