something eating petunia and marigolds

I just planted my annual garden last weekend and my marigolds are now stripped to the stem and my petunia blooms are half eaten as well.

Any idea's on what it could be and what to use.
I thought maybe slugs.....

Slugs LOVE my petunias... earwigs love them too. Diatomaceous earth helps with both.
