what's eating bean leaves Help pic

breakdishesMay 28, 2007

Something is enjoying my newly sprouted pole bean leaves. What is it and what can I do about it?

I did have grass clippings around them. I just now raked them away, so nothing can hide. Ilooked on the under side of the leaf see nothing there. Are they gonna be ok?

My best guess is slugs. Do I see something shiny on that first pic, like a slug track? From the small buckshot holes, there may be some flea beetles involved too, but they usually don't cause serious damage.

I wouldn't encourage you to spend money on a remedy until you are quite sure. If you decide it is slugs, Sluggo is safe and effective.
