Eating Hollyhock leaves

Something is devouring my yellow Hollyhock leaves. The pink ones aren't so bad. What bug is eating them?

If the leaves are skeletonized--the leaf tissue is gone and the veins are left behind--you probably have Japanese beetle damage. You can snip the flowering stems clear down to the ground, then water and fertilize with a granular 10-10-10 to promote new growth in time for fall. The best control for Japanese beetles is to hand-pick them if or when you find them feeding on your plants, then drown them in a bucket of soapy water.
