For years and years I’ve been frustrated and distraught dealing with flea beetles destroying my Eggplants. Flea Beetles cause the millions of tiny holes that can be-speckle eggplants seedlings to the point of killing them.
Flea Beetles are tiny and jump very far – I guess that why they are called Flea Beetles… even on cool mornings when insects tend to be a bit slower they are hard to squish.
This past spring I almost accidentally discovered something that really made a huge difference and kept the flea beetles off very well! I was using kelp powder as a soil amendment and decided to sprinkle a little over the still-damp leaves of my eggplants that were starting to get holey. Well – it worked – there was a huge decrease in damage to my eggplants!
So here’s a quick video of what I did … really simple! And safe and healthy for your garden at the same time!
