My beans this summer have been attacked badly by mites (two spotted mite, bean mite and now broad mite as well - I checked with a microscope). after cropping really well at first, they've turned into a disaster. I've pulled most of them up, and the remaining ones I've sprayed with eco-oil, and I have my fingers crossed they'll come good again. Diane, maybe this is what yours are suffering from - it's been a really rugged season.
