What is eating the petals off my petunias

Zone West Texas desert | padraigh2004 added on May 8, 2015 | Answered

What organism is eating the petals off my petunias in the garden? The leaves are healthy. Plants are watered and fertilized, but something is chewing at the delicate petal of the flowers. (I don't have a pet.) There is no evidence of anything crawling around on the leaves.
