Is this beetle damage?

forensicmomMay 19, 2011

These are my potato plants. I was assuming they are flea beetles but I'm not sure. Any idea and how to treat them?

Will beneficial nematodes work?

Beneficial nematodes can aid in control of some pests that dwell in the soil which might aid in keeping the larval stage of flea beetles somewhat under control.
Floating Row Covers probably would be a more cost effective method of control here.
