chard pest

Santa Barbara, CA(Zone 10a)

This swiss chard has been covered with aviary wire that is stapled to the ground. Inside the wire is snail/slug bait that has been there for about 10 days. I have many examples, however I used newer leaves that were not there when the bait went down. Every leaf in 6 plants is chewed. Any ideas? Thanks so much!

Have you seen little white moths in your garden? That looks like cabbage looper damage.

Yes, but I can't figure out how they are getting under the aviary wire. Thanks for answering
