Go out at night with a flashlight and look for slugs. These creatures love hosta, especially the thin leaf varieties. Here are some control measures: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/plant-problems/pests/insects/kill-garden-slugs.htm
Be careful if you look in the stores for bait as some are toxic to birds and other small creatures/pets that might eat them. Sluggo is one brand that is not toxic to birds, etc and is approved for organic gardens.
