This is my first year planting Long Beans.
I found this little green larva eating one of my bean pod today.
It might be 1/2" long.
What is it?

Looks like a Pod Borer. I've seen similar but not in awhile.

Thanks, Rayder! I get those all the time and wondered what they were. They never cause enough damage to get alarmed over tho.
And thanks for asking, Drthor :0) Now I know.
