    What Kind of Plants? How deformed are they?

    If you have some pics, it would help us a lot in giving you specific advice.

    If it is aphids, they tend to attack the developing leaves. Check around for any green/white spots on the leaves. If you see any, destroy them. Manual killing works best, I cleared an aphid infestation on my VFTS in 2 days using this method. If it is aphids, you will see their shed exoskeletons near the base of the plant, they look like white blobs with little thing legs stikcing out of them.

    Good Luck! And be thankful you're not dealing with squirrels! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_n_32.gif[/img]
