But that hasn't stopped them from decimating my beans. As soon as it cools off this evening, I'll be out pulling them up and planting new. The reference book I'm using said sometimes it's good to just plan on planting twice--supposedly based on the bugs' life-cycle they won't eat the second crop.
And if they should come back a second time, they're going to get a nice shot of Neem oil for their trouble. They snuck up on me this time, but I won't be caught unawares again.
