First announce that you are planning on segregating them from the black beans, then wait for the bullshpit to start piling up. It will improve the soil for next year.

Can you take some good close-up pics of the damage?

That almost looks like a cabbage worm, its bigger though. I planted borage by my tomatoes this year, borage repels tomato worms. I had tomato worms the previous two years, none this year.

I planted a hundred pack of yellow onion bulbs. I lost maybe 15 due to deer stomping, cat pawing, and planting/harvesting.

Yeah, looks like worm damage.
Be damned careful to use any and all pesticides exactly by the label instructions. I don't use any pesticides at all, preferring to just go through and pick the bugs off manually or hose them off. The one exception is whan I was getting a lot of damage from silverfish in a new garden area. I used an organic slug and snail bait (Sluggo) in small Tupperware dishes placed all throughout the garden and it took care of the probelem.

Default Beauty and the Beast...............

When planting a garden in your yard, if you can't rid the area of butter flys and night time moths you need too.............Too many times I've watched these beautifull butterflys touch down on leaves on certain plants and every time lay an egg on the leaf.........New plants of different species brings in new pest...............A safe and all green way to control those worms is to use self rising flour, dusted over the leaves........Especially on cabbage...........
