What is eating my basil plant?

Basil plants leaves are being eaten by something and the leaves are transparent

Hi Nadish,

The leaves are probably being eaten by tiny caterpillars which skelotonise the leaves. If you see the caterpillars remove by hand. Otherwise you can apply some Yates Natures Way Caterpillar Killer Dipel which contains a naturally occuring soil bacteria and is suitable for organic gardening.
