These pests seem to hang around the garden at the beginning of the season There are several ways to deal with them This is what worked for me I put out Beer traps because I thought I had a slug problem what I found in my beer traps were flea beetles for some reason flea beetles like beer. I also made a spray of water mixed with crushed garlic,dish soap & water. I didn't spray everything just the problem areas these two in combination has seemed to wipe out the beatles.

I used DE and it didn't do diddly squat. So then tried Neem oil. Within a day or, two I had half the amount of flea beetles I started out with. Needs to be reapplied every 5 - 7 days. Hope this takes care of the problem as they started out in one of our raised beds and spread to two others.
