Some leaves on bean plants appear to have been sucked dry. What is the likely pest and what is the remedy?

Answer: Dear Jim,
It sounds like your beans are being attacked by spider mite. The product to use is Nature’s Way Mite & Insect Killer, Natrasoap.This product is a low toxic organic soap based spray that will control spider mites as well as other sap sucking insects such as aphids, thrips and whitefly. The soap coats the insect causing it to suffocate and dry out. It then biodegrades into harmless components.
Spray this product early in the morning onto the leaf surface and repeat every 5 – 7 days.
