My garden is looking very very tired. My Rudebeckia and Coneflower are blooming but all the flowers are being eaten. I can't see any bugs and it's too high for my bunnies so I thought maybe systemic would help next year. Does anyone have experience with this?

Are the flowers eaten off, or just chewed a bit? Do you have deer? If it's an insect problem, it may take a trip outside in the dark to find the culprit. Most of the damage done to my flowers is at night. Beetles, slugs, etc come out in full force. I go out with a flashlight to inspect things.
