It's hard to suggest a control remedy without knowing what the pest is. Since you've already used Sevin, which is fatal to most insects, I wonder if the culprits are slugs and snails? You can broadcast a bait such as Sluggo in your flower bed. It's iron based and any product not consumed will degrade into simple iron, which is helpful to the soil. I think it's worth a try!
