I left the camera at my mother's last night, so I can't get a picture, but my bean leaves are darkening and curling in (more like wasting away) from the edges towards the center until the entire leaf is utterly lifeless and limp. Last year I tried to thwart its spread by cutting off the affected leaves, but it didn't slow the progress. I do have aphids that have attacked the eggplants in the bed next to them, but I haven't seen any of them on the beans.
Any idea what it is/how to stop it? I want beans.
Any good aphid advice, either? Hand squishing them is getting tedious, but the insecticidal soap I sprayed on them yesterday only seemed to act as a multiplying catalyst.
