I'm loosing my carrots
One by one my carrot plants are disappearing. Something is eating the base of the stems or the tops of the roots. For each plant that dies, I see a dead shoot having been cut off or fallen over that he base, and then the next day its gone, I've lots two rows, seemingly a few plants at a time. I've been growing carrots in this garden with great success for years and never had any problems, but now they are all disappearing. Any ideas of what I am dealing with. No discoloration in the leaves, they are Denali seed - scarlet nantes.
"Cutworm" were bad for me too.
Timbered over hundreds of my beets before I got them under control
I dug up 100s & spread some ortho "bug getta" (Lowes) between the rows
Follow the carrot top down & you'll find the cut worm (& pulling their heads off Makes you feel good )
I scrape off a little soil as I follow it down
(they turn into moths & moths lay eggs for next year)
I posted about them:

They wiped out my green beans. They seem to be unusually bad this year. and the volume of the black (and white) moths indicates next year will be bad too.
