    if it is slug damage you can check around the edges of the containers and underneath them and in that area to see if you can find them hiding.

    out in the garden if there is a slug problem i put old flat boards around the affected plants and then go out in the early morning and turn the boards over to see what they have collected - squish 'em or dispose and often within a few days/week it can remove most of the worst of the troublemakers.

    oh, and the other thing that you can sometimes see with slugs is their trails on the leaves.

    Madison mentioned black spots. Looking at the bottom three plants in the photo I see what are either black spots or tiny holes.

    Looks like pests. See if you can get a look at one.

    Those holes are too big for flea beetles. I would thin cabbage loopers-try BT.

    There are no bugs on or around them save for a few flies, mosquitos and gnats. There are a few moths as well but we kill all of those when we see them so there haven't been any very long and there were never any eggs present on the plants. I would think these seedlings are not old enough to have hatched and caused so much damage. I am located in the Texas panhandle.

    I am pretty certain it isn't slugs.

    They are black spots. I can wipe or dust the black spots off of the leaves.

    I have done hours of research trying to find this culprit. I know about the eggshells but it definitely isn't slugs.
