Description: Black, often with a curved yellow or white
stripe on either side of its back. Flea beetles are
seldom actually seen; they hop away before you get close
enough to see them. They eat nearly all garden crops,
and the adults are very troublesome when seedlings are
set out. Leaves become riddled with little holes, chewed
through from the underside of the leaf. Larvae chew
on roots of most vegetables, weakening the plant.
results have been obtained using Super-Light Insect Barriers on crops
where pollination is not required. Otherwise, use PyolaTM Insecticidal
Spray or Liquid Rotenone/Pyrethrin on adult
beetles, and Grub-Away Nematodes on larvae.
