I've waited weeks for my chili and peppers to germinate and they are just about to start into their 2nd true set of leaves. However, slowly but surely, something is picking them off one by one. Eating the leaves and even some of the stem. I cant find what it is. I have almost ruled out slugs because I have them up high and I havent had any problems with any other seedlings that are beside it. Any ideas?

One thing I found on the web, was a mention of a green caterpillar with little horns. A few weeks ago I found a green caterpillar in the cold frame and removed it. Maybe there's another I havent found...
