holes in my green bean leaves

I live in eastern NC, have a raised garden with great mulch/dirt mixture brand new, have many holes in my green bean leaves, how do I fix this?

The holes in your bean leaves are likely from bean leaf beetle feeding. You can spray an insecticide such as spinosad (an organic product), but you may not need to. Research shows that even with 25% defoliation, the beans will go on to produce a full crop.
