Get a magnifying glass, or loupe, and look under the leaves. While not blinking, blow towards it a little, or tap it with your finger to see if anything moves.

Get some neem oil or earth soap just in case you need it.

Will keep a close eye, have you heard of trifecta crop control ?
Yes I have. Me ole lady uses it in the garden, and she loves it. I believe it's an organic based pesticide. There are a few good ones out there, so check the ingredients and their percentages, then compare prices based on their true worth. Nobody wants to pay for packaging.

So I ordered the loupe on amazon and I checked them both under the 30x and the 60x and didn’t see anything out of the ordinary what I have seen is some lil gnats or fruit flies that have been flying around and I believe that is the cause of the bite marks. I’ve bought the trifecta crop control but haven’t used it yet.... any advice on how to proceed or just go ahead and still use the crop control ???

Sounds like fungus gnats. Let the top of your soil dry out, as wet soil is their breeding ground. Use the search bar to see how others are dealing with them. I've not yet had to deal with gnats.

When you get rid of them, remember that prevention is key, in fighting pests.
