Thank you for contacting the Toronto Master Gardeners. There are many insects that attack Eggplants. It is important to know specifically which insect or insects are attacking your Eggplants because different insects require different treatment. Take a close look at your plants, the top of the leaves and underneath, the stems and the surface of the soil. Check at different times in the day. Below are some links with pictures and information about insects that attack Eggplants. Once you have identified what you have, you can contact us and provide a clear close-up picture, or take a few of the insects to a nursery for identification and advice.

Good luck with tracking down whatever is attacking your Eggplants !
