Either the world's tallest bunny with an eating disorder, or its a bug of some sort. I bought neem oil this weekend too. That's annoying.

I would second the bird opinion....every year I put out my pumpkin seedlings and within a day, most are bit off and left there. They look like worms. I have watched them attack the seedlings and just nip them off at the tip. Buggars.

Good luck..maybe some bird netting until they get established.

Cheers

Paul

If they are birds, hang some cds on string in the yard. The reflection that is thrown off of them as they spin in the wind scares them off. I know it sounds strange, but it works great in my vegetable garden.

I find that Willie Nelson or ABBA CDs seem to be the most effective.

Otherwise you can buy the shiney red/chrome reflective mylar tape at garden centers and that is what I am using and works great also.

Have fun.

Army worms are similar to cut worms and often work higher on plants taking off tomato branches as an example. When you see new damage carefully root around in the dirt 1-2 " deep up to 1 foot away. You will usually find the culprit.
