peppers - Knowledgebase Question

For the last 2 years, something has been eating the leaves of my pepper plants. I have tried Seven powder applied once a week and an insect spray but the leaves are still chewed. I have looked for aphids or any type of bug on both sides of the leaves but I haven't seen anything. It might be eating only at night. I tried putting slug bait sprinkled around each plant but that isn't it either.

If you've tried Sevin and slug bait and still have problems, you may be dealing with caterpillars of some sort. Dipel or Thuricide targets only caterpillars so it might be worth a try. Wish I had more suggestions!
