Insect Eating Plants

I have poppies, green beans and petunias that are being eaten by an insect. What can I use to save my plants and not hurt the animals?

Look closely at the plants and see if you can find insects. If not, it is probably grasshoppers. They come and go leaving their damage. I don't use pesticides so have learned to think leaves with holes in them are pretty. :-} I handpick larger insects actually on plants and squish their eggs. I want butterflies and bees so am willing to do this.
