Today I went out to check the garden and low and behold something is feasting on my beans. The leaves are riddled with tiny pinholes. I sprayed both sides with insecticidal soap. Any other recommendations? What could it be?

Look for little tiny black beetles... called flea beetles. They will even jump like fleas. You can knock them off with a good blast of water from the hose. You can spray them with an insecticidal soap like Safers.. Or you can plant a trap crop at a distance from your garden. They LOVE Eggplant !!
