Something is eating the leaves off of my Brussel's sprouts. I've been told it could be a "cabbage worm", whatever that is. I've got cabbage plants next to them that have'nt been touched. I can't see any insects or worms on thye plants, but the leaves are going fast. Little help please?

Slugs like to attack at night and be gone by the morning. If you can't see anything eating your plants, it might be slugs.

Pigeons are a huge pest over here in the UK. Slugs and caterpillars are also major pests.

If it is slugs you can put beer in a bowl and they will go in and drowned..So salt on the ground and they will dry up Stew Face 1

I think gardenmamma hit the nail on the head with the beer and salt. You could also check first late at night with a flashlight to see if anyhting new comes out.
