Something is eating my sage. The only insect I can see is this mystery beetle. Please help identify and recommend a solution to keep my sage from being eaten.

    Thank you Laura735. A perfect match. I spent a lot of time trying to identify the beetle with no success.

    Maybe a species in the flea beetle Asphaera genus? Perhaps the shiny flea beetle (A. lustrans)? Check out images in the included link below and see if you have a match. The second link is for how to control flea beetles. Best wishes!
