The most common pest of broccoli leaves is the cabbage worm. It's a little green worm that's difficult to see because it blends in with the color of the leaves. Look on the undersides of the leaves. You can pick off those you see and/or use a product such as Thuricide or Dipel. Best wishes with your broccoli!
