@Deborah Kearney, Could be Japanese "beetles" en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Japanese_beetle.
Hi Deborah and welcome to hometalk! I'm sorry I can't answer your question. I just wanted to say hello and let you know that there are many Pro's and Garden experts here that you'll have lots of help, just like @Sharon Currie has given! So hang in there!! xox
I don't suppose you can post a photo, Deborah? How the leaves were eaten would provide a clue as to what was doing the eating, which you really need to know in order to treat the problem.
