Something is eating my Basil ... I think it is a skinny green looking worm/catepillar, I've only seen 2 but there are lots of holes in my basil leaves. I read somewhere to use spray bottle with water and dish soap .. but how much? And is this the optimal remedy? For a long time my basil was nice shiny green leaves, but now not so much. I have 2 plants by my tomato plants and I think the basil keeps tomato bugs / worms away ... none this year. But my basil on the side of the house is now being eaten by something too.
