I should know this one by now...but haven't encountered it yet...Lil black bugs...lil pin\head size...can fly...biting lots of lil holes and just being terrorists in general. Feasting on tomato and cucumber leaves...ignoring squash.

The tiny holes are flea beetles. No intervention required.

The big damaged areas aren't from them. That looks like it might be gray leaf mold from what I can tell in the pic. That needs fungicides.
