My philodendron have leaves that have holes in them and I think that it is some bug or something. But I can not find any bugs and I have looked under the leaves. What is it? How do I get rid of it.

Based on your description I am not certain what is causing the holes. It might be a slug or snail. These tend to be nocturnal so you might not see it if you look during the day. Or, it is also possible you have a special variety that normally has irregular holes in it -- the following is an artist's photograph but it really shows the holes well.

I hope this helps.
