what is happening to my seedlings??

okay, two more questions for y'all: 1) what would preferentially eat carrot seedlings (they're about 16 days planted, and the tops were getting quite tall, now they're bitten down to the ground :( ) i just put down more sluggo last thursday, but this damage happened in the past two or three days. 2) brainstorming time: why the crap isn't my basil growing? the first attempt i'm pretty sure the seeds rotted, so i replanted 16 days ago-- again, nada. quick fun facts: -i'm in zone 9b. -i've been watering the ground for about 30 seconds every day since planting -the coriander and mint next to the plot are thriving -we have pretty clay soil, but i worked compost into the first few inches before the first time i planted -it gets near constant sun thanks once again for your brilliance :)
