Flea Beetles

//Flea Beetles

The leaf damage look like that inflicted by flea beetles (look for medium sized black beetles). They are a common pests of some garden and agricultural crop plants. On established plants, their damage is often minor and doesn’t affect plant health, but on young seedlings like yours, they could be more dangerous. 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 adviser, a Master Gardener group, or your local garden center professional. http://www.ext.colostate.edu/pubs/insect/05592.html
