    Hello ~

    Something is eating my elephant ears. What spray should I use to help with this issue?

    Thank you for any help.

    Doesn't look like insect damage, more like a disease of some sort.

    looks maybe like animal damage. There are sprays you can put on plants that taste bad and dicourage animals from eating them, however this would'nt work with insects.

    you're welcome!

    I've read that chili pepper spray works. Just grind up chili peppers or use powder and mix with water. iirc there was also liquid detergent it as well. I recommend you do some research and find a good recipe.

    hope this helps.
