Flea Beetle Control


Anonymous added on June 14, 2016 | Answered

Is there a jalapeño vinegar mix that is effective against flea beetles and, if so, what is the recipe and how safe is it? Flea beetles (black variety) are eating the leaves and perhaps roots of my Brassica--kale and collards mainly. They are also in the leaves of my radishes.
