Is it holes like the plant has been chewed or holes like the plant has been shot with buckshot? If it looks like it has been shot, then it is likely flea beetles and this article will help:

If the leaves have been chewed, have you seen the pest and can you describe it? If we can identify it, we can better give you advice on how to treat them.
