In my garden it's earwigs. I've had some hitchhike into the kitchen. I got some food grade diametaceous earth, but haven't had time to apply it yet.

Remember, nobody can go back to the very beginning and make a brand new start, but anyone can start here and make a brand new end.

There's a difference between interest and commitment. When you're interested in doing something, you do it only when it's convenient. When you're committed to something, you accept no excuses; only results."

My guess: Japanese beetles. They eat leaves of beans and roses, perennial geraniums etc It looks like lace. Get a trap like this one and put it about 30ft from your veggies:

If it's on your vines, it's another story.

I have foiled the deer and bunnies from eating my chard with fences. Now this year I have lots of bug holes. These look similar to the ones on my green beans.

Anyone have any idea what is eating these and what I might do to help prevent it?
