Hi from Valdosta, GA! I have had some very pretty Zinnias who are now just shells of their former selves. A very gross larval-looking maggotty thing is going down the center of the flowers and hollowing out the stems. Some of these villians have dark stripes and others are just an off-putting off white.
I noticed some of you had the dish detergent or garlic (or both) spray suggestions for pests. I will try that.
