pest What pest is causing this?

I thought I saw this previously, but I am having a hard time finding similar pics so I am posting it. Just wanted to ask if anyone knows what kind of pest causes this type of leaf damage and if there is any known way of removing this pest from my environment. Thanks!

Looks like it could be flee beetles by the shotgun holes. If so, trap crops (radishes for me) redirect beetles away from your plants you want to save. Could be wrong, hopefully someone else will chime in. Good luck
 
@bpiela Hey Ben, check out this post. Kinda looks like what's happening to you.

Yes! Striped Cucumber Beetle! I have seen them and actually smooshed a couple. Ok, now I got a victim. Gotta look up videos on how to get rid of them. Thanks!
 
Spinosad seconded heartily! It's pretty amazing stuff IMO, and controls a surprising number of pests. And somehow not toxic to most beneficials.

Watch out if you have cucumber or squash around - cucumber beetles carry bacterial wilt and mosaic virus, and if your cucubrits get infected they're pretty much done.
