Sorry to walk in late, maybe too late to help.

I would say bean leaf beetles. So out during a nice warm day if you can and look under the leaves for a bug that looks similar to a ladybug, only not as round. Knock them off into a glass of soapy water and let 'em drown. Get as many as you can every day and hope your beans have a chance to recover.
