The Q&A Archives: bugs?

Question: because those bugs ate my leaves which are half dead should i cut those leaves off?I think someone told me that dead leaves drain the plant.(they are my cuke plants)
thanks, karen bosek

Answer: Flea beetles are the likely culprits. Oils and extracts like Neem, Sabadilla, Rotenone, and Pyrethrins are considered to be the more effective botanical pesticides labeled for use on flea beetles. You can trim off the dead leaves without harming your plant.
