Geranium Plant Has Holes In Leaves

Question From: m. graves - Hamlet, North Carolina, United States
Q: Hello. I have a potted 'Big Red' Geranium plant that has holes in the leaves. I can't see any pests so can you suggest how I can treat this problem.

A: Holes in leaves are usually made by caterpillars the larvae of insects. If you don't see them they may have matured so treating the plant will be a waste of time. Look for new damage and check the undersides of the leaves. Best And Happy Yardening, Nancy
