Zucchini Plants
Q.

What would cause little holes in the leaves of my zucchini plant leaves

Zone 5 | stpeters50 added on June 25, 2012 | Answered

The plants were grown from seed, and have looked really healthy until this weekend. Now the most mature leaves have a lacy look, with lots of holes. I do not see any little insects. There is a bit of white or brown around the holes both on the upper and undersides of the leaves -- I am actually Zone 2, not Zone 5.

It cold be caused by flea beetles. This article will help if it is that:

But the lacy damage you describe is normally more attributed to Japanese Beetles. This article will help with them:
