hi vinny. Only two types of maggots attack a broad range of vegetables wireworms and leatherjackets, mostly underground or at ground level. Cut worms attack a broad range of crops usually at soil level and at night. Slugs and snails attack literally every crop usually above ground level. it should be possible to identify the responsible pest by noting the type and location of the damage.
