Flea Beetle – On Tatsoi

Q: What’s shotgunning my tatsoi? I’m trying to get an early start to the season. These are in a hoop house.

A: This looks like damage from flea beetles. They are common in summer gardens, particularly on eggplant.

It makes sense that they would be out early in a proected hoop house environment.

Spinosad (click for sources) should work to control them.
