Flea Beetle – Control

Q: What could cause all these holes in my eggplant leaves?
A: It’s flea beetle damage. They attack radish and mustard leaves too but eggplant seems to be their favorite food in my garden. You can use organic controls like diatomaceous earth or Pyola (a pyrethrin/canola oil combination) or a synthetic insecticide like Sevin dust or Bayer Systemic Vegetable Insecticide.
