Balding Jew

Why is this Jew balding?

Something has gotten to my wandering Jew. All of the leaves above the pot were stripped over the course of a week or so. I never did see the pest, but it may have been a squirrel burying its nuts in some of my hanging baskets. One of my begonias has suffered similarly. But that doesn’t account for the middle leaves being stripped from the only coleus that overwintered.

At least all of these plants are starting to put out new growth. Still, I am a little indignant. Pesky Pests!
