Mexican Bean Beetles

Let me introduce Mr. and Mrs. Mexican Bean Beetle, my nemesis in the green bean patch.
Don't they look almost like friendly ladybugs?  Far from it, these guys will munch my bean plants to lace, if I let them.   To try to reduce the damage, I squish them between my forefinger and thumb.  Then I search the area for evidence.
Those two pests attempted to create about 35 offspring, which I also squished in eggo.

"You're a mean, nasty bug killer!" says Virginia.

Mea culpa.
