runner bean eater

my runner beans are being eaten.. the leaves are just being left like green lacey doileys..They are still rowing though...
Whats eating them and can I do anything to stop it.


  • Sounds like slugs or snails (one of them leaves the leaf skeleton behind, I can never remember which one).  Snails are also excellent climbers, so it could be them.  Try putting sand or grit around the base of the plants, to make it uncomfortable for them, or try treating with something like nemaslug.

    Slugs ,slugs slugs it is always slugs--or snails- especially in wet conditions-use pellets or whatever means to deter them-it is a war out there

  • damn little blighters..they picked the wrong veg patch to blight.....the fight is on...LOL

    Many thanks
