Bug's attack has started.
Today I was shocked to find some leaves of my black chilies had been eaten showing miserable holes. I can imagine what should be blamed for the holes. I believe the leaves were eaten by young worms of European corn-borer. Despite my insect screen, those leaves were eaten, which means the bugs can habit in soil. The young worms are nocturnal and come out of soil to feed leaves.
I dug out soil around the black chillies but no worm could not be found. I'll be in my garden in early morning tomorrow and try to hunt them.
