Hill them once about 6".
Leaf hoppers will set them back if they come in bad and can bring virus, but have not been too destructive out east. Pyrethrin takes them out.
Smash the potato bugs and orange eggs under the leaves. Spinosad can work if you are not a picker/smasher. Mulch can deter potato beetle somewhat, they like soil beneath the plants. Mulch after hilling if you do.
Watch for late blight, I spray mine with same foliage spray as tomato.
Find the recipe for uncle bills potatoes and onions online.
