I have several Ivy Marengo plants and something is eating the leaves. I have tried Garden Safe 3 in 1 and many other products with no results. These pests are almost invisible but even after treatment with this product I am continuing to find more damage. I have the same problem with Ivy Natasja, Millenium, and variegated peperomia. (spelling ?).

Thanks for any suggestions

Perhaps the damage is from deer or other wildlife rather than insects...but grasshoppers will chew on foliage and move on so you wouldn't necessarily see the "pest" just the result.
