I wonder if snails or slugs are visiting at night? You might venture out after dark with a flashlight to see if you can find the culprits. If so, handpick them, or set traps by inverting a clay pot in your garden and propping it up with a few stones. Slugs will hide in the pot and in the morning you can dispose of them. Good luck with your petunias!
