Something eating leaves off my plants please help

Something has been devouring my plants. Mainly my pepper plants. I have lost more than 40 pepper sprouts. This morning the leaves on my ghost pepper, that pepper, and red bell pepper are gone. Whatever it is, has also begun to eat the leaves on my orange bell pepper, green bell pepper, eggplant, and okra.

I have tried using SEVIN, for insects, MONTEREY B.t. for worms/caterpilars, and then the other night I noticed 3 slugs en route to my garden so I bought ORTHO BUG-GETA.

The plants used to be on concrete and a few on the outside countertop where they had no issues. Over the past week I have been building my garden on the side of my house where I transferred the plants, Turf is laid down, and plants are elevated on pallets. This is when the madness ensued.

Any and all information, help, and advice is very much appreciated. Thank you everyone.
