Title: Whatís eating my kohlrabi?
Post by: gwynleg on January 14, 2019, 13:02:14
I planted my kohlrabi late but have left them in and they have carried on growing. From one angle I thought I had a lovely big one but from another angle it had all been chomped. Theyíre under weighted membrane. Do you think rats or mice? Havenít had this problem before and Iím not very pleased!

Could be :voles; field mice; rats; rabbits;deer? Can you see the toothmarks? Judge for size, also any defaecation that may provide a clue. Footprints of the larger species?, any 'polished' trackways for the smaller. Personally, would unleash a (Little)Nipper or two, strictly for scienific purposes.
