A rounded gold-colored beetle with black spots on its back, it eats the leaves, stems and bean pods. Fortunately, in a home garden there is rarely any need to resort to chemical sprays. Handpicking the beetles off the leaves when you see them will minimize any damage.
Most people like to harvest the beans when the pods reach 12" to 15" long, when they are still young and tender. Check the vines every day or two, harvesting as you go along. Young beans are eaten like green beans and are good steamed, stir-fried or sautéed.
