Control Flea Beetles With Soap

 

 

Flea beetles are an early season pest that can be easily controlled without poisons.

Flea beetles chew tiny holes in the leaves of plants. When they attack seedlings they can destroy the plants before they have a chance to grow. On older plants the damage is minimal.

Mixing a small amount of liquid soap in water is one of several methods of organic control of flea beetles.
