Flea Beetle Problem

Sal Vanilla | Jun 23, 2009 08:10 PM

Anyone have any ideas how to naturally get rid of and/or deter flea beetles? I am so bummed. First they devoured the bok choy and then had their way with my broccollini...

I spent hours snatching and smashing them and then drowning them with spray and then applying soapy water. I ended up picking the bok choy and then breaking down and applying 7 dust to the broccollini. That was depressing because it was the first non natural thing I have applied to my garden EVER.

I would greatly appreciate any home grown knowledge. I could not find anything on the internet!
