I live in joshua texas.
I can't figure out what's eating my plant.
I put bud light beer out in a canister 2 catch snails/slugs, but no luck there.

Welcome to Garden.org, @LPesqueda !

Would it be possible for you to post a photo of the damage to your plant?

Welcome! If what you're seeing is holes all over the leaves, look at the underneath of the leaves for pretty golden beetles like this:
