It is either an insect (such as a caterpiullar, beetle or grasshopper) or a slug/snail (both of which leave visible trails). You may need to go out at night with a flashlight as some pests are nocturnal. If you find an insect try another general purpose insecticide, perhaps in a dust form to leave it on the plant for a bit longer to keep working.
Thanks for the question. Please stop in again soon!
