Do you have a lot of grasshoppers? Or it could be worms of one kind or another. A sprinkle of a white powder called bacillus thurienginsis (BT for short), also called Dipel, should solve any worm problem, and is harmless to people. Good luck. (08/16/2007)

Grasshoppers and caterpillars. They're all over our basil, too, but we're an organic farm and there's not much we can do about it except kill all of them we come across by hand. (08/16/2007)

You didn't say what type of plants. It could also be aphids or slugs. Aphids you use a mix of water and dishwasher liquid in a spray bottle and spray on the plants. Roses get them a lot, but there are other plants that get them, too. Slugs, set out a saucer of beer, which they love and they will crawl into and die instead of eating your plants. (08/16/2007)
