Damaged bean leaves

Asked August 4, 2020, 5:49 PM EDT

I have some strange discoloration and patterns on my bean leaves. I’m curious if I have a pest problem that I can control somehow.

This looks like mite damage. Mites are tiny sucking insects, and each place they insert their mouth parts makes a tiny white spot.

Here's much more and what to do: https://extension.umd.edu/hgic/topics/spider-mite-vegetables
