What is 'bugging' my green beans??

Post  Dara on 5/31/2014, 9:30 am

Can anyone shed light on what is causing this on my green beans? I have not been able to find any insects...and not all plants look this way.

hmmmmmmmm.....maybe slugs or snails? Go out tonight with a flashlight and see if you see any partying going on! Are there any "slime trails" on your leaves?

Sunscald sometimes caused by watering during the heat of the day.  I have some like this but new growth is nice and green.


Does it look like the leaves were chewed.  Or could this be sunscald then the browned part breaks off ???????????????

Sunscald

Very well could be...we are in a very strange weather pattern lately...heavy, heavy rains in the night, then temps soaring into the upper 80's and even low 90's during the day. Some days, heavy thunderstorms one minute and then 1/2 an hour later, full sun and temps soaring...  We always say 'if you don't like the weather, just wait ten minutes', and we are living up to that this year!! Welcome to Iowa!!
