Basil Bugs? Gardening Question.

Hey there.

I'm attempting a garden on my deck, and my basil plants are getting eaten up! It gets so bad entire leaves end up little bitten slivers. I can't see what's doing it; no caterpillars, slugs, etc, and I really don't want to use pesticide or- basically- anything not organic. Is there anything I can do to save them (other than just bringing them inside)?

Thanks!
~Cyn
