Hi On my Coleus I have some holes in the leaves but apart from that it looks healthy. I was wondering what I could use to get rid of the insect thats making the holes.

Thank you

Welcome!

First, you have to identify the insects. Can you post some photos? Also, where are you located?

HI & welcome! Coleus so often get green caterpillars that can be very hard to find. Check along stems and on the bottoms of leaves.
