Hi Mje

I have the same problem with some of my veggies and fruit trees before. I spray them with an organic mixture of chilli pepper and garlic available at Bunnings if you don't have time to make one. I spray them in the morning and afternoon to stun them once stunned I collect and smash them with my fingers. The smaller plants I can't protect I covered them with fine woven net so the critters won't get to them. It worked for me šŸ˜Ž
