Answer:

assuming you have a garden sprayer, the oldest remedy for plant bugs is a simple soap solution - you can add to it if you wish, a drop or two of essential oils - lavender and citronella are favourite. If you grow rhubarb, the leaves can also be made into an insecticidal spray.
I do my dishes by hand, then dump the dirty soapy water on the garden to keep insects at bay. Generally tho, if you have a specific problem, you will need to identify the bug (or it could also be a fungus or other bacterial organism). Each pest has it's own specific remedy.
It depends what's eating them. For slug and snail damage you can use beer traps. For vine weevil you have to get purpose made stuff. For leaf cutting bees you have to accept the damage. For caterpillars you can remove them by hand. Different remedies for different problems I'm afraid. Have a close look at the plants and see if you can decide what's dining on them.

Beer, it's good to keep snails out and even bugs.
