speculation that some types of beetles might also chew on hostas leaves

Black vine weevil or beetle ? Plant Impatiens varieties near the hostas, as this pest prefers the leaves of impatienses.(Something I learned from Bruce Banyai.)
There is another, more deadly pest that many are not aware of===Porcellio laevis, the awful SOW BUG. It eats the tender shoots and at the base no less. Millipedes follow them around and eat their secretions. It is absolutely ghastly. if you get the picture.
