    Go to your local garden and ladscape center. They should have personel who can help figure out what’s wrong with your hostas. It would be helpful if you took them a couple of leaves to show them exactly what you’re talking about.

    Good luck!

    Slugs love Hostas. You can buy chemicals that you would spread around the base and as the slug walks across them they die. Eggshells work great as well when they are all smashed up. If the hostas is in a container you can spread salt like the kind you would put in a water softener around the base.

    I have alot of hostas and usually it is the slugs that eat the holes in the leaves. I take a jar lid or shallow dish and place it at the base of the plant (leaves hide it pretty good) and fill it with beer (I buy the cheep brands of beer) and change it once its full of bugs & slugs. It works!! .. I had them really bad a few years ago and I used beer all one summer and the next year they were not as bad … I still used the beer when I seen the first sign of the slugs and the following year I hardly had any holes in my hostas most all summer however this year I am starting to see signs of them again and … yep you guessed it … I got out the beer and invited all the little slugs over for a drink.

    Slugs do this. Take left over egg shells and put them in the microwave for about 20 seconds let them cool and them crush them..put them around your hostas this is suppose to kill the slugs when they crawl over them.
