I've searched the plant several times but haven't found any suspiciously looking pests. I did see a Vine Weevil in the garden a few weeks ago, but not on the Bay.
No identification made yet.
No interactions present.
It might be worth a midnight visit with a torch. Good luck!
It looks like vine weevil. I've got the same problem. They are on my plant and it looks the same as your plant.
Thanks. In my case the weevils have disappeared. I wonder if they've left their families in the pot? No doubt I'll find out in due course...
