    Hi everyone,

    I'm new to the forum and relatively new to gardening. I've planted pepper plants, and they seem to be doing alright as far as I've been able to read, but the leaves on the plants...get holes on almost looks like something burned through the leaves? Or maybe somethings eaten through them? Not all of them look this way...I don't believe I have a pest problem, as I've got two tomato plants nearby and they are just flourishing....I'm just wondering what it could be and if I'm doing something wrong? I live in hasn't been unbearably hot yet, so I don't think its the sun? Any help would be greatly appreciated =)

    Hi Jekstrom,

    I'm guessing you are growing sweet peppers.* Could be flea beetles.* They make tiny holes in the leaves when they feed.* Try giving your plants a shake to see if any jump off like fleas do on a dog.
