Look for horn worms.

If you don't find hornworms on your eggplants (or peppers, or tomatoes -- they are larvae and can't get far from a food-plant), check for grasshoppers or maybe Japanese beetles in your entire garden. Unlike larvae those are mobile and aren't going to stick around to let you see them chowing down on your eggplant leaves. Pretty sure the holes in my eggplant are from tiny grasshoppers. I've been after them, but they are hard to catch!

Horn worms usually leave a lot of poop.  I enlarged the pictures and did not see any poop but it could be there and I just missed it.

Yeah, I'm thinking grasshoppers too.  I've got a bunch in my garden, but my damage is not as severe as yours.

I'm having the same problem, but definitely not as severe.  But we don't have a grasshopper problem in S. Florida, so I imagine it's some kind of beetle that has a snack and flies off. 

Yes, I'm back!   Very Happy
