Q&A with Kareen – What to do about flea beetles…

Though it’s often challenging to grow in our climate, one advantage is that we don’t have to deal with a lot of garden pests. Aphids, cabbage worms and flea beetles are usually the extent of the pests I’ll deal with in any given year and typically, they are never out of control. Flea beetles are usually the first to emerge; tiny black beetles that attack crops like arugula, mustard greens, potatoes and tomatoes.

In my video today, I address Suzanne’s question about flea beetles attacking her tomatoes. As I explain in the video, the crops usually recover but they can do a fair amount of damage in the meantime. So check out my video to learn what I recommend.
