Don't discount beneficial parasitic nematodes as an effective flea beetle control.

I applied them about two weeks ago and have a significant drop in the FB population, already.

I finally found out where all those flea beetles went when I pulled my beans. I have been noticing a lot of tiny spots on my pepper leaves for the past few weeks but never saw a culprit until today. I really checked them close and found flea beetles on almost every leaf. I hit them with the Permethrin, Dawn and DE mix this afternoon and don't expect to see them again at least for a while.
