You could try mixing a little dishwashing soap and water in a spray bottle and spray down the plants leaves. Sometimes this will deter pests. It doesn't always work ; it depends on what exactly is eating the plants.

Some kind of horticultural oil also works on some pests too. It can be a little harder to find in some areas, there are several different major brands of oils.
