I'm sorry your Wisteria has been damaged!

The feeding larvae of different types of pests is sometimes the cause of "skeletonized" leaves. Some adult pests even feed at night, so you won't see them during the day. Wisteria, however, don't really fall prey to many pests, but the one exception is Leaf Borers...and those little buggers are more difficult to track down and get rid of. These articles may help you positively identify and control whatever is making a buffet out of your wisteria:
