What's eating my bulb flowers?

Have you checked for cutworms? They come out after dark, and are a recurring
nuisance in my garden. They eat both leaves and flowers in my case, but seem
to prefer flower buds. That damage in your photo looks a bit like the
cutworm activity on my plants.

The tricky thing about catching cutworms is that when they sense any
vibration, they drop off the plant. So you have to sneak up on them. On the
ground they look like a stick, and they are extremely good at hiding during
the day.

Good luck!
