What's the most likely pest chewing up all my May Night Salvia leaves? What's the best way to make it stop? Sevin spray? Thanks.

Slugs or snails? If you aren't seeing pests in the daytime, go out after dark with a flashlight and look, then you will know which pest you are targeting and what the appropriate product would be. Please don't guess, and spray first, identify later - it's best to know what you are dealing with before buying and applying a product.

Young caterpillars will eat leaves until nothings left. Feeding at night and residing in soil during the day. I have two phlox divariculata just planted that are going down fast.
