First cyclamen spotted

Cyclamen cilicium, C. hederifolium, and now C. africanum have been 
trying to flower for a couple of weeks now. Something is eating the 
flowers just as fast as they appear, but not the stems or the leaves (of 
C. coum that is showing up.) I finally moved several pots inside and 
have a barrier on a couple of others, but the flowers are coming through 
the barrier so are probably doomed. I had a few left over moth balls 
from the time I had a chipmunk that was fond of Calochortus flowers and 
I stuck one of them in one pot and so far there is still a flower left 
in that pot. Anyone have any idea of the culprit or suggestions?
