Something eating the leaves in my jasmine plant

Zone buenos aires, argentina | Anonymous added on January 17, 2019 | Answered

i don't think it's a bug, the plant was looking beautiful, full of green leaves and then the next morning all the leaves were completely gone. it was stripped bare. my yard is enclosed, so there's not a lot of things that can get in there to cause harm. what could be doing it? i think i saw a frog or a toad in the area one day, could that be doing it? also, what can i do to protect it? to keep it from happening again?

If you are sure that deer and rabbits cannot get to it, then I would pin this down to some insect or caterpillar. This would be the most likely culprit.
