I planted seedling carrots outside over the last few weeks and some disappeared. I assumed they just didn’t make it but on closer inspection something seems to have eaten the leaves. I haven’t spotted slugs or snails and have beer traps. It’s my first time growing carrots. Could it be something else?

The tops of small seedlings can easily be eaten by slugs, and usually you can see their slime trails.
