I planted a spectacular arrangement in a big clay pot and something is eating tiny little holes in my Ipomoea. I haven't seen any bugs but every day there are more and more little bitty holes in the leaves.<br><br>
Anything I can do to get rid of my pesky critters?

It sounds like it could be earwigs. You can go out at night and see if they are the culprits. Also, look under pots and any wood lying around. If so, you can make "traps" for them out of a damp, rolled up newpaper that you discard in a sealed container in the morning, or fill a container with vegatable oil that they will climb in but can't get out of.
