Hi Natalie; Sounds likeyou got 'slaters' baby! Hard to kill...apparently can be 'managed' with things like upturned lemon rinds and potatoe peels. They go under at night for the moisture and in the morning you can get quite a few to destroy! I hate 'em; cuz they are greedy and seemingly unstoppable. Best to bring on the seedlings in safe seed-trays somewhere and plant them out when they are quite large.
