Something Eating My Dendrobium Leaves

Hi there, I am new to orchids, but I have dendrobiums, which I have managed to not kill the last 2 years, and they've bloomed a few times for me. I live in South Florida, so its warm and humid, and recently we moved to a new apartment, and I have my plants on the floor of my patio.

Something is shredding my plant leaves nightly. Does anyone have any idea what it might be? Every morning I check them and its worse, I'm afraid whatever it is is going to kill my plants.

I have photos, but since I'm new, it won't let me post them, I can message them if someone would like to see. I will try to post them in my profile as well so you can see there.
