    Yesterday I found these "chewed marks" on my Van Burren. I know that crotons can get "the new scale", white flies and thrips. These are sucking insects. It was my impression that chewing insects avoid crotons.

    Looking at the chew patterns, I would guess this was done by a snail. Has anyone had a situation with snails dining on their crotons. Not any other leaf on the plant or the adjacent crotons had any "chew marks".

    Seems kind of bizarre? :confused:

    Both Lubbers and Snails eat Crotons and just because it's cold, don't think that Lubbers are gone. I've killed two in the past week.
