I have about 30 hostas that normally bloom in August with large purple flowers. Something has happened this year they're not blooming at all in the Northeast I'm in Upstate New York. They're a lot of holes and I have used seven on the leaves but they don't have any stalks now.is there an infestation of new kind of bugs around here?

The holes are likely from Slugs. They are difficult to see, as they are out at night.
Bloom time can certainly be effected by weather and if the plants are affected by pests or in your case the slugs. Your plants will bloom when they are ready.
