I was just wondering the same thing! A few of my Plants have similar holes. I think it might be some kind of Caterpillar, found one the other day (a really small green little guy..) It's just on some plants and a plant next to it can be perfectly fine.

I will look through all the leaves again.. maybe the little caterpillar is only there during some specific times of the day, because i did not se anything yesterday..

Try to set out cormeal and also look for worms or caterpillars at different times of the day. Cornmeal will show if there are any slugs.

Look for potato bugs.. I caught one rolled in to a ball, hiding in the corner of my pepper seedling's soil..

Found on my roses today. Green worms my guess, seen on underside. Read somewhere to Rub leaf between fingers to remove this creature. I did this. Seen itty bitty white specs on buds, suspect this to be aphids. Squished them also. Another day of happy picking of roses.
