Mexican Bean Beetles are agricultural pests.  They feed on the foliage of bean plants, leaving only a skeleton of the leaf vein pattern.  Native to the southwest and Mexico, the mexican bean beetle has become invasive across the US.  They are dangerously prolific as they will hatch 3 or 4 generations during a season.  After the beans are harvested, the remaining plants should be destroyed.
