Tiny holes in my pepper plant leaves


I recently noticed lots of little holes in the leaves of my pepper plants. A quick search tells me online that they're likely flea beetles. Does anyone have any experience or advice treating this kind of pest? It almost looks like someone shot the leaves with a shotgun.

Diatomaceous earth or Neem oil will do the trick.

Re: Tiny holes in my pepper plant leaves


Thanks! I sprayed with neem oil and things seem to be getting better. I also mulched the base of the plants because I read somewhere that can help prevent anymore larvae from coming up out of the soil
