What is eating my staghorn?

my staghorn is being eaten by something theres big holes around the outside and sawdust like stuck to plant

Sounds like an attack of the staghorn fern beetle. This tiny round beetle chews craters in the fleshy fern fronds and spoils the appearance of the plant. Prune off the damaged leaf and destroy as soon as possible. Search for adult beetles and remove by hand. The sawdust like substance is merely the spore of the fern.
