Default What's Eating My Laurels?

Laurels, every leaf has been chewed.
How can I prevent?

Thank you all.

Could be vine weevil adults, they make notches. could be leaf cutter bees
which do similar. I am not aware that there is anything you can do about it
:~)

Hi Mary,

Which 'laurel' are you growing? the true laurel, Laurus nobilis (the Sweet
Bay, culinary) or one of the Prunus-family 'laurels' (deadly!)?

Deadly they may be, but something eats our laurel hedge too. From the
pattern, I thought it might be vine weevil :-(((
