Something eating various!

I have been having trouble with something eating a bunch of my plants. First I thought it was bunnies, so I put up a fence. Then I thought it was birds, so I put chicken wire over my plants. But they are still getting nibbled on! So far, I have had one lettuce plant completely ravaged, various seedlings, beans and soybeans, peppers, cucumbers, cauliflower, and even some of my herb plants either nibbled on or had all their leaves eaten. My next step is an organic insecticide, but any ideas what is eating them? Thanks!

Pictures of the damage would help. Look UNDER the leaves for some types of insect pests…Do you have trash piled up around? Are there signs of voles? Look along the edge of your fence for signs that something has dug under it, or pushed it up.
Wish I could be of more help.
