Okay, this is my first time making my own topic on the Permie forums. I have a small organic garden right next to a woods. In the far left corner of the garden I planted some snap beans (Burpee Seed company) in early June.

Now I did a little research before hand and new that beans sprout quickly, but now I realize that maybe I should have planted them later in the Summer. I came out to find a few holes where it looked like a bug had been eating through the leaves. Does anyone here know what kind of pest could be eating the beans? Someone told me it may be aphids, though I'm not sure.

Aphids suck on plants, they don't make holes.  If the leaves have a lot of little holes, it might be flea beetles. Usually they concentrate on leaf crops, though.
