pumpkins in peril

jz500(5 NW PA)June 21, 2007

Could someone give me an idea as to what could be causing holes in my pumkins' leaves? These plants are very young and all the leaves have lots of tiny holes in them. I tried to catch the culprits at night with the flashlight, nothing there, I do not see slug trails and I do not see anything on them when I check in the day time. I am at a loss!

It's hard to know. Almost sounds like flea beatles. But I don't recall if they bother squash. Hopefully they will kick into the high speed growth stage soon and leave those pests in the dust.

Tahlequah, OK
