Variegated Fallopia

I just added this plant to my garden this spring and it has done quite well until just yesterday. I noticed I am getting holes in the leaves.... Seems like some bug is having a free lunch.. I can not see anything on the plant, What can I do to stop this??

Looked up your plant and found this quote:

"Aphids, slugs, and snails may occur."

Should be easy to treat for any of these.

Thanks, I appreciate it.....

Also look for japanese beetles, I've noticed they are eating holes into the japanese knotweed and persicaria polymorpha which are both closely related to your fallopia.
