If its mammal, try hanging a sock filled with blood meal, if its insect try a spray, maybe something organic.

Get some Sevin Dust and spread it all around the plants in a big circle, as far as you can throw the dust. Try not to breath it while dusting the area around your plants. This barrier will help to keep most bugs away from your plants

Not too knowledgeable with only one OD season under my belt, but I was cursed with the green caterpillar, but the didn't show up til flower. And hatched out of the buds eating them from the inside out. Had random gnats, and spider mites even on a few of them, and nothing ate fan leaves. Only thing bugs ate on mine were the buds in flower. Sorry, that's not much help....

It can be any of a couple thousand bugs, when growing OD you can IMO/E do the best by creating a "buffer" zone around your plants with seven or any garden bed repelents circling your plants in as big a circle as possable.

one of my friends told me to get a bottle of mineral oil, take some garlic and grind up the garlic in a food processor mix the two, strain out the chunks and spray the plants down with it...what do you think...
