What bug is this?

It's not one I'm familiar with.  I admit to not having grown green beans for a couple of decades.

And I wonder what will give me a better chance of getting the beans before these bugs (caterpillers?) eats the leaves.  They also have a few holes in some beans.  And how do I get rid of them?



  1. They look larval stage so I would spray with Bt.

  2. Thanks to cousin Pat, in AZ, who connected me to (sorry the site comes up that way in comments...its the NC extension) and I now know its a Mexican Bean Beetle!


Welcome to my blog. I'd love to hear from you.. I do review (monitor) comments so I read them, but I'd rather share them!
