Flea Beetles

//Flea Beetles

The insects and the leaf damage look like flea beetles. They are a common pests of cole crops (cauliflower, broccoli, etc) and some other garden and agricultural crop plants. On established plants, their damage is often minor and doesn’t affect plant health. Insecticide treatments for flea beetle control vary with the species and the crop. We recommend you seek advice about control strategies that will work for you, if the number of beetles and their damage continues to increase. We’ve included some web-links with more info. You may also want to seek advice from your local university extension farm/home advisor, a Master Gardener group, or your local garden center professional. http://www.ext.colostate.edu/pubs/insect/05592.html
